Chamber Spring Banquet
We are excited to announce that we will be having the 2022 Spring Banquet.
Please mark your calendars for Thursday, April 28. Rich Donnelly, the inspiration for the book The Chicken Runs at Midnight, will be our guest speaker.
The Chicken runs at Midnight is a Barnesville best seller. This book has changed the lives of many.
As summarized on Amazon.com:
One of the most inspirational stories of sports and faith ever told, The Chicken Runs at Midnight Powerfully shows that God can work in our lives even when we think it’s too late to change. As a Major League Baseball coach, Rich Donnelly was dedicated, hardworking, and successful. But as a husband and father, he was Distant, absent, and a failure. He’d let baseball take over his life, and as a result, his family suffered. This is,
Until one day he received some harrowing news.
“Dad, I have a brain tumor, and I’m sorry.” These words from his seventeen-year-old Daughter, Amy, turned his world upside-down. Now, more than ever, he was determined to put his family first.
We are also changing things up a little this year. We are looking for different sponsorships. I have attached a flyer that lists everything. If you should have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask.
In addition to sponsorships, we are also selling individual tickets for $25 per person or $45 per couple.
Along with appetizers and dinner, a cash bar will also be available. Additionally, we will have three themed Gift baskets available for silent auction in place of the live auction. Please contact the Chamber office if you are interested in donating to the baskets. We are hoping for a fun-filled evening that you will not want to miss.
