2023 Awards Gala brings business community together; honors Chamber business, resident

There was an atmosphere of celebration, pride, and camaraderie Nov. 4 at the Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce’s 24th annual awards gala. Nearly 150 people attended the event held at the Amber Room Colonnade in Danbury.

The evening’s festivities included a three-course meal, a silent auction featuring items donated by local businesses, a wine pull and balloon pop fundraisers, and music and dancing.

The highlight of the evening was the presentation of two prestigious Chamber awards. Rich’s Wings & Things, owned by Rich and Deb Vallinaggi, was recognized as the recipient of this year’s Distinguished Business of the Year Award and Tracey Morrissey, founder of Brian Cody’s Brothers and Sisters Foundation, was honored as the Distinguished Member of the Year Award.
