• Santee Chamber Weekly Update 28APR22

  • Hello Santee!
    Tuesday night we hosted our Santee Heroes Celebration at Carlton Oaks. This is an event we started back in 2019, just to have to hit the pause button on it over the past two years. Bringing this event back to life has meant a lot to our Chamber as it’s allowed for so much joy, placing these community heroes on a well-deserved pedestal. We honored 3 organizations (non-profit, community organization and place of worship) along with 9 special honorees ranging from teachers, first responders and volunteers and proudly announced the Santee Chamber’s 2021 Person of the Year, Dan Bickford. 
    First and foremost, thank you to Daniel Buksa, owner of Mission Realty Group. Daniel was asked to take this event and bring it back to life, and boy, did he deliver. He brought in partners like TDT Construction, Carlton Oaks and Junction 52 to host and cater and once the date was set, he never stopped working. He filled the room with honorees, sponsors, community leaders, friends, family, coworkers, you-name-it. His infectious positive energy made a good night into a great one and we are so glad to have him as part of our Chamber board. Thank you to all who came, contributed, were honored, and congratulations to all on a perfect Santee evening.
