I am so so proud of Basia! Here is part of the letter she received from the Publisher of the St Louis Business Journal. What an amazing achievement...
Congratulations on being selected as one of 2012’s 40 Under 40 honorees by the St. Louis Business Journal. Over 400 nominations for young professionals were received! A special section of the St. Louis Business Journal featuring you and the other honorees will be published in the January 27, 2012 edition of the newspaper.
In conjunction with our sponsors, Webster University and Northwestern Mutual, we would like to honor you and your colleagues at a special awards dinner on Thursday, February 9 at the Chase Park Plaza ’s Khorassan Ballroom, 212 N. Kingshighway Blvd. Cocktails begin at 5:30pm followed by dinner at 6:30pm and the awards program at 7:30pm. We ask that you join us as our guest; additional seats may be purchased for $100 each or $1,000 for a table of ten. (*Prices are $115 and $1,150 respectively after 2/2/12.) If additional seats are purchased, you may join your colleagues, friends or family at that table. There will be no head table for winners. You can view event details, as well as a list of 2012 honorees, at http://stlouis.bizjournals.com/stlouis/event/60181.
All that is expected is that you will be present to receive your award at the dinner as our guest and cooperate with the Business Journal reporter who calls for your story. In addition, our staff photographer, Brian Cassidy, will be taking photographs of honorees for use in the newspaper. You should already have received photo shoot details.
Congratulations again! Thank you for setting such high standards of personal and professional integrity for all the St. Louis business community.
