SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce hosted its annual Chamber Celebration night last week at the Saratoga Racecourse’s 1863 Club. Cynthia Hollowood was presented with the 2024 Joseph Dalton Community Service Award, and Amy Smith of the Saratoga Arms Hotel was honored with a custom painted lawn jockey statue.

Cynthia Hollowood, Executive Director of Saratoga Sponsor-A-Scholar and former General Manager and Partner at the Holiday Inn Saratoga Springs, was recognized for her work with Sponsor-A-Scholar, as well as her volunteer hours with more than a dozen local nonprofits, including the Saratoga Chapter of the American Red Cross, the Saratoga Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Saratoga Economic Development Corporation, and the Saratoga Hospital Foundation, among other organizations.

“For all of you who are doing great things in our community, thank you and keep going,” Hollowood said in an acceptance speech. “You never know how or when these efforts will pay off.”

For serving as 2023 Chair of the Board for the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce, Amy Smith received a custom painted Saratoga Arms Hotel lawn jockey statue presented by the Chamber’s current Chair of the Board, Chad Kiesow, Chief Operating Officer of Stewart’s Shops. 

“I’m inspired by the enthusiasm of our young leaders,” Smith said, “and I’m excited for the future of the Chamber and Saratoga County.”
