Several honored at Spirit of Excellence Business Awards

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Top business leaders were recognized at the 9th Annual Spirit of Excellence Business Awards Gala.

Stellar Productions Advertising held the gala Saturday night at the Savannah Marriott Riverfront. Several local businesses and professionals were honored for their achievements and community involvement. The honorees included Hardeeville Mayor Bronco Bostick and the sister of Troy Anthony Davis, Martina Correia. The theme of the gala was Winning in Difficult Times.

"I know as a matter of fact the example it's putting out there, especially during these economic hard times," said Estelle Mannion of Stellar Productions Advertising. "Businesses are succeeding and some of them are doing extremely well and it sends a message to let the entrepreneurs know there are all types of businesses, some of them are African American, who are doing quite well in Savannah."

WTOC's own Cyreia Sandlin served as emcee. WTOC News Director Jan Smith was also in attendance.
