Business Appreciation BBQ & Golf
The 2013 version of Business Appreciation took place over the course of two different days, starting with the traditional barbeque luncheon, which was the first event held in the new banquet tent facility at Newport News Golf Club at Deer Run. Approximately 300 people joined to celebrate the successes of the Newport News business community over the past year. EDA Chairman Henderson and Mayor Price highlighted the achievements of Newport News businesses, thanked them for the work they do each day in Newport News, and laid the groundwork for more great things to come. A week later, over 100 business leaders, City and State officials and strategic partners took advantage of a beautiful spring day to close out Business Appreciation by participating in this year’s golf tournament.
