WKYC News Highlights Connectors Choice Awards

 

CLEVELAND — Cleveland Business Connects (CBC) publisher Renee DeLuca Dolan will be the featured guest on today’s noon broadcast of WKYC (Channel 3) News. She will preview the third-annual Connectors Choice Awards (CCA) celebration March 3 at the House of Blues Cleveland.

 

Joining DeLuca Dolan on the set will be Sammy’s Executive Chef John Taylor. Cleveland-based Sammy’s is nominated this year in two CCA categories — Best Onsite Caterer and Best Offsite Caterer.

 

The Connectors Choice Awards honor the top companies, organizations, and individuals in Northeast Ohio’s networking and event-planning communities. Sixty-three finalists — three in each of 21 categories — were determined by a record 1,948 ballots cast by readers of CBC magazine. The winners will be announced during the awards portion of the CCA ceremony.

 

The House of Blues will open its doors to all registered attendees at 5 p.m. After an hour of networking, the awards ceremony — also open to all attendees — will run from 6 p.m. to approximately 7:15 p.m. The remainder of the evening will be dedicated to additional networking, dining (food stations), cocktails, giveaways (including two Continental Airlines tickets), and live entertainment. The featured entertainers throughout the evening will be the three CCA nominees for Best Entertainer — Jerry Bruno Productions, represented by Esto Jazz (5-6 p.m.), Rock the House Entertainment Group (7:20-8 p.m.), and Sparky B (8:15-9 p.m.)

 

The 63 finalists are listed below. All 21 winners will be profiled in the March issue of CBC Magazine, which will be released March 3 at the House of Blues.

 

More than 400 business professionals are expected to attend. Each attendee will receive a $30 gift card from John Robert’s Spa.
