Lake Whitney Annual Awards Dinner “Blast from the Past”

Save the Date! The Lake Whitney Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual Awards Dinner themed “Blast from the Past” on February 2, 2017. 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 donations 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 30, 2017. If you need to have someone pick up your item, please call 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 LWCC 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.
