The Chamber Awards Banquet
Save the Date! The Lake Whitney Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual Awards Dinner on February 5, 2015. The main purpose of this dinner is to give chamber members an opportunity to recognize those members of our community who give of their time and talents to make our community a great place to live.
Auction: Your donation of items for the live auction and silent auction will help the chamber keep up the good work of promoting Lake Whitney and supporting other projects that make the city and lake area a better place to live, work and play.
We want to make sure that your organization will get much deserved publicity for the items that you donate. Early birds will have their item listed and pictured in the newspaper, newsletter, on our website and Facebook, each week. Please turn in your item to the chamber office by January 31, 2015. If you need to have someone pick up your item, please call Diana Reed at the chamber office at 254-694-2540. If you would like to donate money rather than merchandise, it is most welcome. The chamber will see that the cash donation is also recognized.
Promote your business: The LW Chamber would also like to give you an opportunity to promote your goods and/or services. You may turn in 20-50 “gimme” items (e.g. pens, caps, cups, notepads, rack cards, brochures, etc) to the chamber office. These items will be available on the hall tables for the guests to see and take.
Tickets: Tickets for the Awards Dinner will go on sale January 19, 2015 and are $18 each. Tickets purchased at the door will be $25 each. A regular table of eight will cost $144. This year we are also offering a Premium Table of eight for $175 (You may choose the location of your table from our seating chart based on availability at the time that you buy your table.) You may contact the chamber office to buy your tickets or tables with a Visa, MasterCard or Discover card.
