INSTALLATION & SHINING STAR AWARDS
At our annual Installation, in addition to marking the Chamber’s anniversary and installing the new executive members of our Board, we also acknowledge our Ambassadors who volunteer their time to further the Chamber’s goals, and honor some of our community’s exceptional businesses, non-profit civic groups, public servants, and residents with our Shining Star Awards. Award nominees are elected by members of the community and winners are announced at the Installation event.
2020 INSTALLATION & SHINING STAR AWARDS
The 2020 Installation Dinner & Shining Star Awards was held as a live virtual event on Thursday, August 27th with an online auction beginning the week before the live event. For the first time, the entire community and general public had unprecedented access to this event because of its online platform! The theme of the event was "Tropical Paradise."
Thank you for joining us as we celebrated 108 years of community and service to the Montebello community! If you missed the event, a recording of the event will be available soon so you can watch the inspiring recognition of exceptional individuals, businesses and organizations who have contributed to our community as we presented the 2020 Shining Star Awards, witness the solemn oath of service as we install our 2020-2021 Board of Directors, review the Chamber's activities and accomplishments over the past year, and relive the fun of live and silent online auctions, as participants picked up valuable deals and exclusive items while helping to support the Montebello Chamber!
