Ridgefield Chamber to Honor Pamby Motors and Atria Ridgefield at Inaugural Breakfast

The Ridgefield Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce its Inaugural Breakfast and State of the Town Address will take place on Friday, March 13, 2020 from 7:30-9:30AM at Silver Spring Country Club.

The local business community gathers at this event to honor Ridgefield Chamber businesses who contribute to the vibrancy of the local economy and hear First Selectman Rudy Marconi present the State of the Town Address. This year the Ridgefield Chamber is recognizing Pamby Motors with the “Legends of Ridgefield Business” Award and Atria Ridgefield as “New Business of the Year.”

“John, Mike and Fred Pambianchi are certainly legends of the Ridgefield business community. Pamby Motors has grown into one of the leading Jeep dealers on the East Coast and have recently celebrated the businesses 70th anniversary. In addition to their business success, they are tireless and charitable supporters of so many Ridgefield community, school and church organizations and are most deserving of this award” said Ron Herman, the Chairman of the Ridgefield Chamber of Commerce. 

“We were delighted to meet the Atria Ridgefield team when they opened their Main Street leasing office. They joined the Chamber and were eager to start taking an active part in the town”, said Executive Director Kim Bova. “It’s been a pleasure to get to know Executive Director Margarida Velardo and the Atria staff and watch the community takes shape. They are creating an beautiful environment for their senior residents to enjoy an active and engaging lifestyle in the heart of town, provide assisted living and memory care services and will employ up to 70 people. The Chamber is excited to present Atria with this award.”
