Local Luncheon Attendees

Local Partners Luncheon

On March 22, 2018, Big Y held their 3rd Annual Local Appreciation Luncheon at Hartford/Windsor Marriot in Windsor, CT. Over 120 local partners attended the event to enjoy and recognize their success from 2017. A local partner from each department was chosen to accept a "Local Partner of the Year" award. There was a new element to the event this year - Big Y had the opportunity to choose 26 local partners to feature on 13 of their trucks. The first completed truck with the new wrap was positioned outside the event. Each of the chosen local partners to be featured on the trucks was presented a toy truck replicated to look like the life size truck.

Congratulations to Our "Local Partner of the Year" Award Recipients
