Bluffton Ball Winners


The Third Annual Bluffton Ball Presented by Covert Aire was Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018, at Pinckney Hall in Sun City. The Bluffton Ball honored local businesses and individuals who have contributed to the Greater Bluffton Community by presenting them with the Bluffton Business Awards. Thank you to our sponsors, Junkluggers of the Coastal Empire, Mike Reichenbach Chevrolet, Peacock Collision Center, Liberty Tax, Bluffton Today, Bluffton Breeze, Island Packet, Lowcountry Radio Group, Accurate Lithograph, Triad Design Group, WTOC, Iron Hook Photography, and Lowcountry Floral and Design. 


The finalists were selected because they have demonstrated business excellence and the highest standards of ethical conduct, integrity, and civics and social responsibility. We received over 400 community nominations and because of thehigh caliber of the nominated individuals and companies, the Bluffton Ball selection committee deliberated long hours and gave careful consideration to all the nominees. These businesses and individuals stood out as leaders who exemplify ethical standards and behaviors.


The Chamber was thrilled to partner with the wonderful members of Programs for Exceptional People to make the Bluffton Business Awards. Programs for Exceptional People is a Non-Profit Organization whose mission is to promote independence, social interaction, and employment opportunities for Adults who live with intellectual disabilities. Each one of the awards were created in the PEP Ceramic Store in Bluffton and are as unique as the Members who made them.
