Chamber President Deb Ramos termed the night "a phenomenal success — on a scale from 1 to 10, the night was a 12 or 13."
Ramos credited Ambassador Committee Chairwoman Jamielynn Salisbury, and members Richard Iannitelli, Nancy Carrott, and Nancy Rosedale for coordinating the shuttle buses from , , and North Bay Manor.
"The people who attended were thrilled with the evening, with all the food, and with the excitement of going to all the different restaurants," Ramos explained. "I was overwhelmed with such a wonderful night."
