Annually the Greater Bluffton Chamber of Commerce initiates a specially recognized event, known as The Golden Oyster Awards, to honor outstanding local businesses that have made substantial positive contributions to the Greater Bluffton Community. Golden Oyster Awards are prized to businesses who display business excellence, community-mindedness and commitment to the growth and well-being of Greater Bluffton. To receive one of these awards is to obtain one of the highest honors dignified among the entire Greater Bluffton business community. These prestigious awards go to those who make this a truly incomparable place to live and work.
We are dedicated to the health and safety of our community, so due to COVID-19 concerns, we will not be holding a live event this year. We will be partnering with a brilliant local creative agency, Harden Creative, to highlight our winners in a signature promotional video. This video will be widely used to encourage local business support, to promote award winners, the Chamber, and the community at large.
The Golden Oyster Awards event is the only of its kind in Bluffton, South Carolina. These awards are not a popularity contest, depending on public votes. These awards will be given to businesses who effectively communicate through their application how they are helping their employees grow and succeed, as well as, how they are giving back to the Greater Bluffton Community. If you are interested in receiving an award, send in your application, essay and $25 application fee by August 28, 2020. Applications can be emailed in to Jessica@blufftonchamberofcommerce.org, and payments can be made over the phone (843.757.1010) or checks made out to the Greater Bluffton Chamber of Commerce at P.O. Box #1897.
