The Groomys 2012 – Gala & Awards Ceremony
SECAUCUS, NJ – On April 22, 2012 the best pet grooming has to offer gathered for an exciting night of recognition, dinner and dancing in conjunction with Intergroom. The night began with a serene harp music reception and ended with the dance band Phenomenon playing an encore set until one o’clock in the morning. In between Chuck Simons, the founder of The Groomys, hosted a sit-down dinner where The Groomy Awards were presented to the recipients.
The night belonged to the professional groomers. Chuck Simons, inventor of the Groomers Helper® and newly named Public Relations Officer of GroomTeam USA, launched the inaugural Groomys. The Groomys awards professionals in the industry who have gone above and beyond and those who have made great contributions, so others may follow in their foot steps. The Groomys Gala event was produced in conjunction with Intergroom, with many thanks to Christine DiFillipo, Producer of Intergroom.
The Groomys was conceived by Chuck Simons several months prior to the event when he found out that the Cardinal Crystal Grooming Achievement Awards was moving to Las Vegas and would no longer be held at Intergroom. Chuck’s first response was, “Hey, that’s enough. First Miss America… now the Cardinals”. Chuck’s mind went into to overdrive and that was when he came up with the idea to keep the focus in New Jersey, at Intergroom, and that is how the Groomys was born.
