Nearly 200 guests attended the SnoValley Chamber of Commerce’s tenth annual “Boots and Bow Ties” Gala at the Snoqualmie Casino on March 24.
The gala served as a networking event and recognized four Valley business owners for their achievements and contributions to the community.
The winning businesses each exemplified the chamber’s motto of strengthening the community through commerce, said Chamber President Micheal Hughes.
“We are truly fortunate to have partners and business owners who truly care for our community,” Hughes said in a statement.
