Centennial Awards Celebration
presented by Tidelands Health
November 9, 2017
5:30 - 8:30pm
The Chamber’s premier event, the Annual Meeting and Celebration Awards Dinner presented by Tidelands Health, is a themed evening of live music, dining and festivity that recaps the accomplishments of the past year and honors outstanding citizens for their contributions.
What a special evening celebrating the outstanding contributions to our community! Some 250 Chamber members and friends gathered at Pawleys Plantation to honor the Chamber’s 100th birthday, but most importantly, to celebrate the accomplishments and positive impact of individuals and businesses on Georgetown County. Last night, the Chamber was honored to recognize the following with our 2017 Business Excellence Awards:
One of the most memorable moments was the tribute to the Chamber’s first President Brig. General Holmes B. Springs and the celebratory toast presented by Dr. Lash Springs, the great-grandson of the Gen. Springs.
Chamber board members- past and present - and staff gathered in the center of the ballroom for a special birthday cake provided by Pawleys Island Bakery while the gathered guests sang “Happy Birthday”!
The Chamber also announced its Legacy Project—the creation of a scholarship program to benefit Georgetown County students. You will receive more information about this project in the days to come.
The festive evening with a 1920s flair featured music by U-N-I, delicious dinner by Pawleys Plantation, historic photos provided by the Georgetown County Library, beautiful décor—all orchestrated beautifully by event planner Santana LeRoy of Events by Santana. Matt Sedota, EASY Radio, served as the emcee extraordinaire.
