"Their purpose is to help all of our businesses and our people in order for our businesses to succeed and prosper," said Jon Yurconic, president and CEO of the Yurconic Insurance Agency.
"Packed house. 1,300 people and lots of excitement, lots of fun honoring great businesses," said Tony Iannelli, president and CEO of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce.
Like Yurconic, honored for 50 years in business.
"We're blessed with phenomenal staff, phenomenal people that work with us and also great customers that support us every day," Yurconic said.

Williams spent time after the event, greeting guests and posing for photos at the 69-WFMZ/MeTV booth.
