MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. – The Mount Kisco Chamber is celebrating 50 years of supporting business spirit and growth in “the hub of Northern Westchester,” in addition to honoring 2015 Citizen of the Year Frank Yozzo, owner and operator of Four Seasons Flower Shop, in a celebration at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 13 at the Holiday Inn of Mount Kisco, One Holiday Drive.
More than 150 business owners, professionals and civic-minded residents are expected to attend this annual event.
Yozzo, who was named the 2015 Citizen of the Year by the Mount Kisco Chamber of Commerce, was born and raised in Mount Kisco, where he attended St. Francis Elementary School and Fox Lane High School. He discovered his passion for decorating at a young age. At 14, he decorated his sister’s wedding; when the owner of The Flower Basket saw his work, she offered him a job. Yozzo seized the opportunity, and that is where he learned everything about the florist business.
The chamber is also celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Mount Kisco Chamber of Commerce and the spirit of business success. The celebration will include the recognition of its long-standing Mount Kisco businesses and congratulations to their collective achievements.
“Both Frank Yozzo and the recognition of our long-standing Mount Kisco businesses and congratulations to their collective achievements, is a sure reason to celebrate, and we are truly excited about the 2015 Citizen of the year event,” said Mount Kisco Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Caroline Loeb.
The chamber is accepting raffle donations and offering advertising opportunities in a special keepsake souvenir journal. Click here for details.
