Vic Linoff will be presented with the Tempe Chamber of Commerce’s Spirit of Tempe Award at the 16th Annual Breakfast for Chamber Champions on Feb. 21 at the Embassy Suites Tempe. The award recognizes lifetime achievements of service, dedication and contribution to the community and honors hard work and strong commitment to improving the quality of life in Tempe.
Linoff has actively participated in supporting Tempe as a volunteer and advocate since 1973 when he and his wife Vicki opened their antiques business on Mill Avenue. Much of his focus has been on public transportation, historic preservation, Tempe history and urban planning.
From helping incorporate the Downtown Tempe Community to chairing the Tempe Chamber, Linoff has been a strong voice for the interests of independent business for more than four decades.
“Take a look at the major initiatives in Tempe over the past few decades – downtown redevelopment, the FLASH, historic preservation, transit – and you’ll see that Vic Linoff played a major role. His involvement in local issues, charities and causes has made a powerful impact on Tempe, and we are proud to honor him,” said Mary Ann Miller, president and CEO of the Tempe Chamber of Commerce.
The Breakfast for Chamber Champions, where Linoff will be recognized, takes place from 7:30 to 9 a.m., Feb. 21, at the Embassy Suites Tempe, 4400 S. Rural Rd. To attend, please call (480) 967-7891 or visit www.tempechamber.org.
