The St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce has postponed the Good ‘Burger awards for a week because of the threat posed by Tropical Depression 9.
Chris Steinocher, president and CEO of the chamber, sent out this statement Tuesday:
“Our Good ‘Burger Awards event is a fun celebration of our community, and due to the current predictions for Tropical Depression 9, we will be moving the date from Thursday, Sept. 1 to a rain date of Thursday, Sept. 8 to ensure your safety.
“Because your safety is our main concern, the Good ‘Burger Awards will be held at Jannus Live from 6-9 p.m. The party will go as planned on Sept. 8 with live music, food from local eateries, and the ‘Burg Blonde on draft as we reveal and celebrate the 2016 Good ‘Burger winners.
“Tickets for the Sept. 1 date will be honored at the event on Sept. 8. To request additional tickets, please visit stpete.com/GoodBurger.”
A Good ‘Burger is a business, organization, or individual in greater St. Pete making a positive impact in the community. In honor of a former mayor who referred to his citizens as “burgers” (as in St. Petersburgers), the Good ‘Burger Awards were established to honor Chamber members who contribute in a positive way to make the community special.
