2021 Luncheon

Our successful 2021 Family Business Awards Luncheon was held October 28, 2021 at the Brightwood Golf & Country Club.

Family Business Atlantic is honored to recognize the accomplishments of three very diverse family businesses at this year’s Awards event which was held late last month. From a 130 year old heritage  glass company to an Italian market and two amazing women entrepreneurs– all share a similar vision of service – to help businesses contribute to the economy in our region. The Italian Market, Blue Door Group and James F Lahey Glass were applauded and profiled for their accomplishments and their entrepreneurial spirit.
