Dayton SCORE Holiday Celebration at Carvers

The Dayton chapter of SCORE (Service Core of Retired Executives) held its annual holiday celebration at Carvers. Chapter members along with invited clients, partners and other guests enjoyed an evening of fine food with a special menu, holiday beverages and socializing. The annual event is a time to recognize SCORE volunteers with awards and spotlight some of the chapter’s client successes. Phillip Parker, the president of the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce was the guest speaker who highlighted some of the Dayton area business successes for 2018 and chapter chair Ann Riegle-Crichton handed out the 2018 recognition awards. Prizes were awarded with the annual drawing featuring prize baskets from SCORE clients. Take a look at all of the fun.

SCORE (www.score.org) was founded by the SBA in the 1960’s to harness the skills and knowledge of retiring business executives to help start and grow small businesses in America. Today it is a nation wide organization of over 350 chapters and over 3000 counselors that are retired, semi-retired or still active in business on a daily basis. The Dayton Chapter has over 50 members that help small for-profit businesses and non-profit organizations in eight southwest Ohio counties. These seasoned and successful business veterans help local entrepreneurs that are dreaming of starting a new business, need to stabilize and recover a struggling business, or want to compete aggressively and grow a successful business. Most of the Dayton SCORE counseling and education services are free so visit our website at: https://dayton.score.org/ or call: 937-225-2887
