The Walla Walla Valley Chamber of Commerce promises a magical experience for its 130th annual Awards Banquet this month.
The banquet celebrates volunteers who give their time and talents to make the community a better place to live. As in years past, the event at the Marcus Whitman Hotel & Conference Center will include silent and live auctions and fabulously decorated tables.
New this year is a food drive component, Chamber officials announced. Guests are asked to bring two nonperishable food items for the local food bank. Those who participate will be entered into a prize drawing.
This year’s banquet, themed “Magical Moments,” will be Nov. 28. A Man and Woman of the Year will be crowned, as will the recipient of the Chamber’s Spirit of Excellence Award. Whitman College, Walla Walla University and Walla Walla Community College will also recognize those who contribute to their campus communities.
Tickets are $60 apiece. To reserve a seat or learn more about table sponsorship, call 525-0850 or email Betsy Hadden at firstname.lastname@example.org.
