CHAMBER: MASKerade Virtual Gala
This year's event will be different but we didn't want to miss the opportunity to celebrate our businesses and honor those who have contributed to our special community. We will also pay tribute to those lost this past year. In addition to being held virtually, this year's event is scheduled closer to the holidays so that you can take advantage of the donations from local businesses for your gift-giving needs, and continue to shop and live locally.
Tickets for a special Gala-to-Go bag will be available for purchase, which will contain all the goodies listed below and some surprises! Each bag is suitable for one or two guests. You may also join us virtually at no cost. Either way, you will receive the Zoom link in your confirmation email. The deadline for ordering the Gala-to-Go bags is Monday, November 30.
$50 Gala-to-Go bag includes:
$20 Dining Dollars certificate, redeemable at your choice of seven local favorites!
Mardi Gras beads sponsored by ROCK STAR Realty
Party popper sponsored by Alison Miller at Keller Williams Realty FC

And more surprises!
These special add-ons are available through the registration link, to make your Gala-to-Go experience even more fun and special. Please note that you will need to pick these up on December 3 from the business providing them.

COVID Community Champions - While there won't be a specific award for any one business, we will recognize those businesses that stepped out of their normal lines of business to support others in the community.
