Tickets available for 2016 Chamber Banquet

Published 2:21 pm Tuesday, January 5, 2016

Tickets are available for the Chilton County Chamber of Commerce’s annual banquet Jan. 29 at 6 p.m. at the Clanton Conference and Performing Arts Center.

Tickets are $25 per person and will include dinner, awards and entertainment by De’Ja Blue, a six-member dance and show band from Birmingham.

This is the second year for the band to perform at the banquet.

Those interested in attending the banquet are encouraged to purchase their tickets early in order for event organizers to get a headcount for the caterer to know how much food to prepare.

There will also be a “social time” beginning at 6 p.m. to allow those in attendance the opportunity to mingle before dinner and talk with the new administrator for St. Vincent’s Chilton, Suzannah Campbell.

Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. and the Chamber will also announce the recipients of its Ambassador of the Year, Business of the Year and Community Spirit awards.

Chamber of Commerce Executive Assistant Lynsie Glasscock said the purpose of the event is to do something in appreciation of the members of the Chamber.

“It is a night for people to come out and mingle with everyone,” Glasscock said. “We do our monthly luncheons on Tuesdays and not everyone can come to those so this is a good opportunity for people to come and get to meet all of the other Chamber members.”

Glasscock said those planning to attend do not have to be Chamber members to enjoy the event.

“If someone has been thinking about joining the Chamber or just wants to find out more information, this is a good time for them to do that,” Glasscock said. “They can come and network with other people.”

The banquet in 2015 had roughly 300 people in attendance, Glasscock said.

The Clanton Conference and Performing Arts Center is located on the Jefferson State Community College Chilton-Clanton Campus off Lay Dam Road near Interstate 65 Exit 212.

Tickets for the banquet are available at the Chilton County Chamber of Commerce, 500 Fifth Ave. N., in Clanton.
