Good Morning Cedar Rapids! Returns for a Traditional Breakfast Celebration
Oct 18, 2021
One of the Economic Alliance’s signature events, Good Morning, Cedar Rapids! (GMCR), presented by Cedar Rapids Bank and Trust, returns to its in-person glory on the morning of November 10, 2021! This annual breakfast gathering celebrates the role small and home-grown businesses play in the local economy by bestowing three BRAVO Awards and three Community Spotlight Awards upon member businesses in the area. Economic Alliance members will come together for a fun morning to learn and celebrate together in a jam-packed event with entertaining surprises through a high-energy format.
GMCR debuted in 1992 to provide the Cedar Rapids Area Chamber a forum in which to honor small businesses. The Chamber and the planning committee embraced the concept of creating a way to focus on small businesses because it was felt that large organizations received disproportional publicity for their activities.
Our mission is to spotlight the area’s best kept business secrets: small businesses that are unique, home grown, locally owned, with a long history as an Economic Alliance member and an established presence in the community.
Registration to attend GMCR is now open for members who would like to reserve a table for 10 or an individual ticket at https://bit.ly/3CMza55
Congratulations to our 2021 BRAVO Award Winners and Community Spotlight members who will be honored at this year’s event on November 10.
