The following businesses and individuals will be honored during the awards ceremony:

  • 2013 Horizon Award, for a business in operation three years or less – Amanda’s
  • 2013 Small Business of the Year, for a business with 50 or fewer employees – Rudd Insurance

  • Loman C. Trover Healthcare Award – awarded posthumously to Dr. Scott Gaines

Additionally, the Chamber’s new members from 2013 will be recognized.

The party is a return to a former tradition when the Chamber’s annual meeting was held at night, said Chamber President Lee Lingo.

“As we began planning this event, we wanted to make it an occasion to celebrate our members,” Lingo said. “We decided not to hold a daytime event because we don’t want people to have to rush back to work. We want them to have a chance to dress up, network, relax, and enjoy a celebratory atmosphere.”

Attendees will enjoy food by Brook Hollow Catering, music by local acts, and multiple networking opportunities.

A cash bar, wine tasting, and bourbon tasting featuring local blends will be offered by the Ballard Convention Center.

Barbara Yonts Photography will also be on hand to take complimentary “red carpet” photos as people enter the venue.

Madisonville’s Hampton Inn & Suites is a major sponsor of the event.
