BBB Celebrates 50th Anniversary

For 50 years now, the Better Business Bureau has been setting up guidelines for companies that protect consumers around the Coastal Empire and Low Country. Last night, the bureau celebrated its anniversary at Savannah Station.

This chapter covers nearly 40 counties, and it's already looking ahead to the next 50 years.

"After tonight, the possibilities are limitless because as we move forward and as businesses move forward, technology's increasing," said president and CEO Ross Howard.

As part of last night's celebration, the BBB announced a very special new award. They're sponsoring a regional Torch Award, named after Diane Wahrman, who helped start the better business bureau 50 years ago.
