TDS-sponsored award honors woman-owned Fox Valley business

The TDS-sponsored Dream Big-Small Business Award, a Heart of the Valley Chamber (HOTV) award recognizing an outstanding woman-owned business, was presented this week to Honey Event Planning & Coordination.

Owned by Tori Heidemann, Honey Event Planning is a full-service wedding and event planning based in Menasha and serving nationwide. A committee of HOTV Chamber members selected the business out of 27 applications.

TDS presented Honey Event Planning with a donation of $1,500 at the chamber’s Women You Should Know luncheon. The next biannual Dream Big-Small Business Award will be given out in March 2024.

“The new Dream Big Small Business Award embodies our belief that our communities thrive when our small businesses thrive. By partnering with TDS, we are able to give small businesses a boost. Whether it's enabling them to explore new products, acquire vital equipment, enhance marketing strategies, or meet critical financial obligations like payroll and rent, our goal is to ensure that entrepreneurs have the resources they need to flourish,” said Nicci Sprangers, executive director of Heart of the Valley Chamber.

“We are thrilled to recognize Tori and the wonderful business she has built here in the Fox Valley. TDS is proud to work side by side with the Heart of the Valley and our business community to help make our region an excellent place to live and work,” said Pamela Litscher, TDS associate manager of Field Marketing.
