St. Pete Chamber Announces 2015 Good ‘Burger Nominees
July 20, 2015 | St. Petersburg, FL – The St Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce® announces the nominees for the 3rd Annual Good ‘Burger awards. A Good ‘Burger is a business, organization, or individual in greater St. Pete making a positive impact in our community.
The 2015 Good ‘Burger Awards, presented by Florida Print Solutions will be held at Jannus Live on Thursday, September 3rd from 6:00pm – 9:00pm. The name “Good ‘Burger” historically comes from the citizens of St. Pete having been known as “burgers” (as in St. Petersburgers).
“The Good Burger Awards are a fun way to celebrate the businesses in St. Petersburg that are going above and beyond to make our community the best it can be,” says Ryan Tarrant, Good ‘Burger Event Chair. “Each year keeps getting better and we’re excited for more growth and surprises with this year’s event.”
