Annual Dinner

More info to come soon!

Hold on tight! We are excited to celebrate 75 years of the Shawnee Chamber in 2021 and will be doing so appropriately by making it our Annual Dinner one of our grandest events ever.

Thank you to our presenting sponsor:

 

Shawnee charted its course for 2020 and is ready to set sail! Thank you to everyone who joined us for a great evening of fine dining, drinks and dancing! It was quite the night thanks to our sponsors, our attendees, and the hard-working planning committee. The program was emceed by Abby Eden of FOX4 and featured remarks by the Presenting Sponsor Kevin Tubbesing, President & CEO Ann Smith-Tate, 2019 Chair of the Board Heidi Thummel of GBA and 2020 Chair of the Board Michelle Herman of Sunflower House.

 

We also debuted our 2019 Good Starts Here video:

 

The 2019 Citizen of the Year was also announced and the well-known, former city-councilman Mickey Sandifer was given this great honor. Learn why Mickey was named Citizen of the Year here!

We are so grateful to all of the attendees and sponsors for supporting this event and for those participated in the live and silent auction. Those funds support a variety of programming and scholarships through the Chamber of Commerce Foundation.

We took many photos throughout the evening. Scroll through the gallery below or view the full album here. Pictures can be downloaded directly from Flickr and will also be uploaded to Facebook. Pictures that were taken at the Step and Repeat can be found at the end of the gallery!
