Yesterday I had the distinct pleasure of attending the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce Pinnacle Business Awards.  I was a guest of The Matthew’s House of Cary, thank you Brenda and Sheila for the invitation!  The Matthew’s House is also a client of Smith & Smith, CPAThe Matthew’s House was being honored with an award in the “Individual Entrepreneurial Company Awards” section as the winner in the 10-25 Employee category.  Super congrats to them!!!  Sheila Ogle, owner of The Matthew’s House, went on stage to accept the award and we all cheered so loud for her!

Congrats to the winners!

Congrats to the winners!

It was such a fun luncheon and I enjoyed being part of The Matthew’s House table.  My good friend, Shelli Dallacqua, President of Shelten Media, was also at the table and she was busy keeping social media up-to-date on the progress of the luncheon awards.  The luncheon was held at the Raleigh Convention Center in downtown Raleigh and was hosted by Penn Holderness of NBC-17/WNCN.  There were several other award winners from the Cary area and a big CONGRATS to my dear friend and fellow WBON of Cary Board member, Karen Albright, for her company, BodyLase Skin Spa for winning an award in the “Steady Growth and Profitability Award” category!  Congrats to all the winners.  Thank you to Lois Cozart of My Girlfriend’s Closet for styling me in the silver ruffled metalic Trina Turk blouse.  Mention the next time you shop at My Girlfriend’s Closet (downtown Cary & downtown Apex) and get 10% off your total purchase!

Last week was also the ShopLocalRaleigh May Morning Social and it was held at the corporate office of Pretty In Pink Foundation.  I was impressed with the good crowd of people, especially considering it was the Friday of Memorial Day weekend.  I enjoyed meeting Dr. Anna Abernethy, she is part of the dental team at Renaissance Dental Care, located in the North Hills Shopping Center in Raleigh.  I also enjoyed talking with John Stanton, President/CEO of The UPS Store.  He currently owns two UPS Stores in the area and is expanding with a third store to the Cary area very soon.  Congrats to both Dr. Anna and John for the success and growth of their new & expanding companies!
