Toast of the Town Business Awards Gala 2023

The Novi Chamber of Commerce hosted the 2023 Toast of the Town Business Awards Gala on Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi. Last conducted in 2020 due to the pandemic, this year’s event theme was “A Night in Monte Carlo,” where guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, dinner, gaming, a silent auction, an open bar, and dancing. The charity partner for this year’s event, which receives a portion of the proceeds, was Jessica’s Splashpad, an effort to build a community splashpad at Novi’s Bosco Park dedicated to the late Jessica Star-Rose of FOX 2 Detroit. The event was sponsored by Diversified Members Credit Union; Me, Myselfie & I; Varsity Lincoln; Ascension Providence Hospital; SLI; Schoolcraft College; Malinda Mims State Farm; Comcast; and the Suburban Collection Showplace. // Photographs by Patrick Gloria
