On October 6, 2015 at the 6th Annual Suits and Sneakers event, the Greater McLean Chamber of Commerce presented the Collaborative Impact Award of the year award to Johnny Hanna, but he says the award is really for YOU!
Johnny explains, “While we appreciate this recognition by our area’s best chamber, the satisfaction of knowing we are doing our part in bringing our readers and the area’s independent merchants and service providers a ‘closer connection’ is our greatest reward. For over seven years, we have worked diligently to ‘Celebrate, Associate and Illuminate’ our area’s small and independent businesses in an effort to neutralize the enormous effects of large corporate marketing dollars small area businesses can’t match.”
He adds, “In recent years, there has been a new appreciation by communities for the diversity, jobs, and tax revenues these hard working, risk-taking entrepreneurs contribute to our towns and society. Receiving this award is a validation for all of us at Calamity Media that our vision and sincere efforts to help were “spot-on” from the beginning.”
Publishers Johnny Hanna and Mary Jeanne Cincotta, along with the talented designers, sales executives and staff extend their sincere thanks for this award and promise to continue their work to build a closer “Tysons” community. This award is for YOU! Thank you!
