Dear Friend and Supporter: We're starting to plan our big annual event at the Forsgate Country Club in Monroe Township, NJ. We hope you'll reserve December 15 on your schedule to join us at NJSBDC's annual Small Business Growth Success Awards celebration. As you know, this affair is our one major fundraising event. We're hoping that we'll even exceed last year's accomplishments. With your support, we know we can reach that expectation! Our annual Small Business Growth Success Awards Luncheon is scheduled for Friday, December 15, 2017 at 11:30 am - 2:30 pm. As one of the first pilot projects in the nation, the NJSBDC program has assisted small businesses and entrepreneurs for almost 40 years. Our small business clients' compelling success stories deserve such public acknowledgement at this very special affair. And, we will also be joined by some state legislators who have advocated for our cause over the years. PNC Bank and PSE&G are NJSBDC's major sponsors of this event. Sponsorships, advertising in our commemorative program book and ticket sales to our luncheon all contribute greatly to this event's success and our small business assistance mission. We're providing discounts through October 6 for ad purchases. Ticket sales are also discounted through October 16. NJSBDC network's clients are entitled to the discounted ticket price regardless of the time it is purchased. Please join our NJSBDC Team and Client Award Winners at the December 15th celebration. We look forward to seeing you again this year at the Forsgate Country Club.
