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.
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. 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. Winners are selected by an impartial panel made of other chamber professionals from across the Southeast.
