Westside Family YMCA, 920 Elmgrove Road, Rochester, will receive the Business in the Spotlight Award from Gates Chili Chamber of Commerce on Dec. 12 in recognition for its contribution to the economic vibrancy of the community, community involvement, special achievements, growth and success and job creation.
The quarterly award requires an in-depth nomination, interview and judging process. Companies are critiqued on several levels, including contribution to the local economy and community, success, longevity and growth of the company and unique approach to the industry.
“We are pleased to be presenting the Westside YMCA with this award,” said Carla Vazquez, New York state-certified business adviser with NYS Small Business Development Center and chairman of the BITS committee. “The YMCA of Greater Rochester Westside Branch is a vital organization in our community. They are a great place to exercise, offer great programs for people of all ages and have amazing child care options that fit any family.”
Westside YMCA nurtures the potential of kids, helps people understand and improve their health and provides opportunities to give back to and support their neighbors.
Gates Chili Chamber’s lunch meeting on Dec. 12 serves as its holiday networking and luncheon event. The event will take place at Brook-Lea Country Club, 891 Pixley Road, Rochester.
