On December 1st, YPGO, the Ormond Beach Chamber of Commerce, and Ormond Mainstreet teamed up to host a Holiday Bock Party that started on the west end of Granada Plaza, beachside in Ormond. Those in attendance followed the holiday balloons to all participating businesses and got the chance to checkout store fronts and locations that may have been new to us. All businesses provided some sort of snack or drink, and of course, signed off on our block party map! The party concluded at Lulu’s Oceanside Grill where we had a raffle drawing for everyone who successfully completed the crawl! All proceeds from the event went to the featured non-profit, the Community Christmas Club, a charity that began providing food to those in need in Volusia County during the holidays since 1931.

There were a lot of people that made this event a big success, but we wanted to give a shout out to all the businesses that participated. Thank you to Hershey’s Ice Cream, Granada Jewelers, Shores Medical Center, Alive Nutrition, Sun Dollar Boutique, Edward Jones, Salty Dog Surf Shop, Ormond Beach Olive Oil Co., Ormond Beach Florist, Bikini Company, Artsy Abode, Larry’s Giant Subs, Preppy Beach, Donnie’s Donuts, Tomoka Brewery, and Lulu’s Oceanside Grille. Another huge thank you to our event sponsors, Realty Pros Assured and Adams, Cameron & Co. Realtors!

It is hard to believe that 2016 has almost come to an end. We are so proud of what we have been able to accomplish this year as a group and certainly are looking forward to what the future has in store for us. We want to thank all of our YPGO members by hosting a YPGO Member Ugly Sweater Party on December 13th at Virgola. We look forward to celebrating the holidays with you all, and most importantly, say thank you for a year well done.
