SOMERSET, NJ - More than 500 business leaders from the private and public sectors gathered to celebrate the Somerset County Business Partnership's 2019 Annual Meeting & Celebration of Success at the Palace of Somerset Monday afternoon.
This year's celebration marked the SCBP's 100th anniversary.
"Our focus from the beginning of the year has been to celebrate our 100-year history, but do it in a way that prepares us for the next 100 years, SCBP President/CEO Mike Kerwin said. "Today marks the beginning of our next 100 years as an organization."
Attendees had the opportunity to network with many of the county's decision-makers prior to eating lunch.
In addition to celebrating the anniversary, the Business Partnership honored three recipients of the 2019 Economic Vitality Awards for contributions to the economic growth and welfare of Somerset County, its employees and its residents.
The 2019 recipients were Pfizer for their investment in Somerset County to achieve their mission of creating breakthroughs that change patients’ lives; the Somerset County YMCA for their work in strengthening the community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility; and the Chimney Rock Inn for their long history of growth in Somerset County and for providing excellent food at reasonable prices in a family atmosphere.
