On May 17th, the Visit Champaign County Foundation will be hosting the 10th annual Toast to Tourism at Carmon’s in Downtown Champaign. Each year, they honor businesses and organizations that are devoted to making Champaign County and beyond a great place to be.

This year’s awards will go to B52 Hangar MX, Michaels’ Catering, Neil St. Blues, Triptych Brewing, and the Japan House at the University of Illinois.

From Jayne DeLuce, President and CEO of Visit Champaign County, “We are thrilled to honor these organizations and their staff that have increased visitation to our community while improving quality of life for our residents and visitors. We continue to see the economic impact of travel and tourism increase thanks to the exceptional people who work hard every day to create a welcoming atmosphere for all.”
