The Chamber Annual Banquet is only one month away and if you are not already getting excited for it, you should be! This semi-formal event is our yearly time to get together as a full membership: to celebrate the year, to recognize community leaders, to enjoy fellowship, a delicious meal, and of course some entertainment to round out the evening! A change in venue is just the beginning…we have a great evening planned for you.
January 19, 2018, at McCody Concrete, the VIP Reception for our sponsors and special guests will be held in the upstairs of McCody Concrete at 5:30pm. Doors downstairs to the bays will open at 6pm for cocktail hour and the silent auction begins.
It is a tradition that while we fundraise for the Chamber’s yearly efforts, we also give back a portion of our silent auction proceeds to one of our non-profits. This year, the Fred & Clara Eckert Foundation for Children (Eckert Youth Homes) is our recipient, so come prepared to be generous! If your business would like to donate something for the silent auction – please let us know!
Lieutenant Governor Brent Sanford and Miss North Dakota, Lizzie Jensen, are our special guests this year and our entertainment for the evening is Humorist Devin Henderson. But my favorite part of the evening is giving out the awards. The Chamber has a long history of recognizing community and business leaders for the admirable work they have done. While we only give out six awards each year, the 28 nominations we received this year are a testament to the quality of people living and working in this community. Not to mention the vast list of past winners, many of whom are still contributing to the community to this day.
And you can’t forget about the meal! This year, we will have three different Chamber members providing the appetizers, main course and dessert. Just another chance for our members to highlight how remarkable they are! It is going to be a great night!
So now that you are thoroughly excited for the banquet this year, please make sure you get your tickets! If your business want to sponsor a table, contact us today as we have only 3 table sponsors left!
I cannot wait to see you all there!
