Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce
Hosts Down on the Bayou
To Announce Annual Award Winners
This year’s Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce (GRCC) Annual Membership Dinner was a Down on the Bayou Night. Each year at this dinner seven awards are presented to very deserving investors. The awards include the Businesses of the Year as well as Ambassador of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Citizen of the Year, and a Shining Star.
Charismatic emcee E. Michael Isaak, Isaak Law PLLC, led the festivities throughout the evening. He did a phenomenal job of keeping the evening flowing. Current Board Chair Mike Broussard chose the bayou theme and showcased a fun night full of Bayou and Cajun influences. Music was provided by Pete Snow. The Louisiana Bayou infused menu was catered by Tampa Catering.
The evening’s theme was also brought to life by the many dedicated members who creatively decorated tables throughout the venue. Guests were asked to participate in the contest by voting for their favorite table.
