To the Editor:
The Yorkville Area Chamber of Commerce wishes to thank all who attended, sponsored, or volunteered at the annual dinner on Feb. 15. With Rush Copley as Presenting Sponsor, the dinner was attended by 268 members and guests who enjoyed the ambiance, excellent service and delicious filet mignon dinner at Whitetail Ridge Golf Club. During networking guests enjoyed appetizers, “smooth rockin’ jazz” music by Dave Eno, and had fun making photo memories on the red carpet.
A brief program was presented by YACC Board President Sarah Allen and Executive Director Sherri Farley, with a fun “get to know your board and staff" trivia segment followed by awards presentations. Throughout the evening a photo retrospective slide show recapped images from the past year’s events, assembled by Sara Fontanez, Fontanez Photography, with Ben Kirkland and Jeff Norris of TCG Solutions supplying tech expertise.
