2012 Emerging Business Leaders Awards Gala

Emerging Business Leaders

Finally…young professionals are rewarded for their hard-work in & out of the office in Western New York!

On Wednesday, February 22nd (7:00p-10:00p) the Emerging Business Leaders will be hosting their First Annual EBL Awards Gala at Salvatore’s.  The Emerging Business Leaders (EBL) was created by the Amherst Chamber of Commerce and is geared to young professionals who are in the demographic age range of 39 years and younger. Don’t worry, we are not calling you old if you’re above 39, simply spreading the love!
 The EBL Awards will recognize young professionals in several of different categories for their achievements in Western New York. Unlike, your average corporate awards dinner, the EBL Awards will be a night to remember with an elegant cocktail setting, music provided by KISS 98.5’s own DJ Tony Mamaluke, and a performance by Buffalo’s own band ‘More Than Me’. In 2010, ‘More Than Me’ won Hard Rock’s Battle of the Bands and opened at the “Hard Rock Concert 2010” for Pearl Jam, Stevie Wonder, Ben Harper & Relentless and for  headliner Sir Paul McCartney!
‘More Than Me’
Our thought, since the EBL Awards is geared towards young professionals, lets skip the usual sit-down dinner & make this an awards dinner worth looking forward to.
As Colleen Dipirro, CEO & President of the Amherst Chamber of Commerce states “Emerging Business Leaders is about more than networking. If you are an upwardly mobile individual in business and you are looking for opportunities to give back, get involved in a charity, make a difference in our region, meet your peers or just have fun, EBL is the right group to join.” The EBL hosts monthly networking events in the Buffalo region allowing for young professionals to come together, share a drink and build relationships. To learn more about this amazing organization visit the EBL on Facebook & email ccampell@amherst.org to subscribe to the mailing list.
Stay tuned for the ticket release date, as they will move quickly. Tickets inlcude: Dinner, Cocktails & Entertainment by  Kiss98.5 DJ Tony Mamaluke and of course a live performance by the band, ‘More Than Me.’
