MeetGreet1Matt Wilson, AndrewMcMurray and Mike WilsonThe Scarsdale Business Alliance (SBA) hosted their second Meet & Greet on June 6 at Zachys and celebrated their one year anniversary. The SBA is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the Village of Scarsdale and its local businesses. On Thursday more than 150 people gathered to learn about the SBA and connect with the local business community. Summer cocktails were provided by Zachys, and lite bites were donated by Jackie B’s, M.S Walker, Sapori, Standing Room Only and Via Forno. County Executive George Latimer was in attendance to show Westchester County’s support of the SBA’s initiatives.

The SBA was created to foster cooperation and innovation in local businesses. Scarsdale is fortunate to have many large independent successful retail businesses along with new emerging entrepreneurial ventures. There is also a robust contingent of realtors, banks and independent practitioners throughout the area that support the community. The SBA looks to combine all of these elements, and work closely with Village government to improve Scarsdale and create a vibrant downtown.
