Past DIAMOND Award winners got together for a special cocktail celebration at the Boca Raton Resort & Club Thursday night.

The award winners gathered at The Blue by Susan Saturday of Bluegreen Vacations, who also serves as the chairwoman of the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce. Attendees included this year’s winner, Ethel Isaacs Williams of Kaufman Lynn Construction, and Barbara Cambia, last year’s winner.

Every year, the chamber honors a professional woman who is Dedicated, Inspiring, Accomplished, Motivated, Outstanding, Nobel and Driven (DIAMOND). Troy McClellan, the president and CEO of the chamber, attended the reception, along with Sarah Pearson, Chasity Navarro and Sherese James Grow, all part of the chamber.

Joining in the celebration were other recipients of the prestigious award: Jackie Reeves of Bell Rock Capital, Victoria Rixon of SunTrust (who conceived the idea of this honor during her time as Chamber president), business owner Yvonne Boice and Mary Sol Gonzalez of Image360.

I’m proud to be in such great company as a fellow DIAMOND Award winner, but we did miss Rocki Rockingham from Jarden Consumer Solutions, who was unable to attend.
