2016 BDB Gala - Thank you!

Published Monday, September 12, 2016


The Business Development Board would like to thank everyone who attended this year's annual BDB Gala on September 10 at the Breakers. We sincerely appreciate you taking your personal time to join us as we celebrated our annual economic development accomplishments.  It is because of your support and the support of our Board of County Commissioners that the BDB was able to facilitate 27 relocations and expansions, creating 2,487 jobs and investing over $100.7 million into our local economy.

Since the BDB ended its fiscal year on September 30, Gina Melby was recognized for her outstanding leadership as the 2015-16 BDB Chair and was welcomed as the new 2016-17 BDB Chair for another successful year. Thank you to Mark Bellissimo of Palm Beach International Equestrian Center for serving as this year's GRAND SPONSOR and to all of our other sponsors for making this year's gala a huge success. We are extremely appreciative.
