According to IGONC Executive Director Bob Pulverenti, “This is an annual tradition our members look forward to each year. We have a good crowd, and spouses, vendors and employees were all welcome. This year, there was a brief presentation of plaques to presidents from past years: Stan Creech of Creech Import Repair of Raleigh, and John Keenan of Dixie Trail Automotive of Raleigh.
“The event was held simply as a night to put business aside and celebrate the holiday season with friends and colleagues. It was a wonderful evening, and our members always enjoy chatting in a less structured format. Everyone was glad to get the chance to meet in a more relaxed forum and talk on a more social level due to the more relaxed atmosphere of a holiday party.
“Our association is successful, in part, because of the long relationships we have built with our members and vendors. It is important to build bonds in person and to give an opportunity for our members to meet with like-minded business owners for support and learning.”
