Third annual Golden Leaf Gala = elegance + fun + great prizes

Although the dress requirement is business casual, many people come decked out to the Golden Leaf Gala, a Chamber event presented for the second year by Foreman-Blair Pontiac Buick GMC Cadillac.  It really is a fun-filled night of great networking, great food, and great chances to win prizes.  I attended last year’s gala and had a great time.  There is still time to register and attend.  Don’t miss it.

The event is being held at the Champions Center.  The cocktails and networking will start at 6:00 PM and continue to 7:00 PM.  The food stations will open at 7:00 PM.  The Golden Leaf Award will be presented at 7:30, and following that, our version of “Deal or No Deal” begins.  One lucky attendee will battle the Security National “Banker” for a chance to win $10,000.  Last year, the contestant won $3000.  I had the chance to be the banker.  It was great.

Twenty-five other attendees will win over $4000 in prizes, including:

The food
