Elburn Chamber elects Business and Member of the Year

By on March 23, 2012

ELBURN—Every year at its Winter Dinner, the Elburn Chamber of Commerce elects a Member and Business of the year.

This year, the Member of the Year award went to Kristen Damolaris from American Bank & Trust.

“Kristen went above and beyond in serving the chamber,” said Cindy Gurke, the chamber office administrator. “All Kristen’s time was volunteered in order to help the community.”

The Business of the Year Award went to the Elburn Countryside Community Center, which also has shown a great deal of support for our community, Gurke said.

This year, the Winter Dinner and Silent Auction raised enough for two $1,000 scholarships.

“Hughes Creek Golf Club did a great job in hosting this event on March 10,” Gurke said. “All items that were in the silent auction were generously donated by our chamber and community members. Without them, this event could not have been possible.”

The Elburn Chamber of Commerce would also like to thank the Winter Dinner Committee, headed by Damolaris, Carrie Murphy, Annette Theobald and Leslie Flint, for all their hard work, Gurke said.
