On April 18, SCORE Lancaster-Lebanon held their 10th annual Small Business Award Luncheon honoring six local small business and nonprofit organizations.

The Ware Center in downtown Lancaster was the host to 300 community leaders from Lancaster and Lebanon Counties at the awards event. The Small Business Awards were presented to the 2017 award winners: Clare House, Immaculate Landscape Specialists, KPETS, Magic & Wonder, Makes Scents Natural Spa Line and Severino Health Advisors.

The six winners shared their story during the luncheon on how SCORE has helped them grow and helped us to inspire success in others.

As a natural leader, Eva—Executive Director of Clare House here in Lancaster—wanted to make sure she was doing everything she could for her organization, as well as being a good manager and boss for her staff. "These were essential components to developing professionally and personally and I knew that the experience my mentors would lend to me would be incredibly valuable in that journey," explains Eva. "At one point, I even thought, I think I've done everything I know how to do, but I don't know what I don't know... and that was the point where I finally thought, It's time to get a SCORE mentor."

As one of the oldest and most active chapters in the nation, SCORE Lancaster-Lebanon  volunteers are committed to using their knowledge and expertise to assist business owners, entrepreneurs, and nonprofits during every phase and aspect of business.

"It takes very little more than the initial contact. It doesn't take much effort to get started with SCORE. SCORE is there to help; there are lots of mentors, lots of resources, there are people with experience and people with know-how, and they can leverage their knowledge to help you and your business improve," explains Jerry Glenn, SCORE Advisory Board Member.

Many thanks to our sponsors, patrons, and all in attendance for helping us celebrate the accomplishments of these business owners and nonprofit leaders.
