139th Annual Dinner
On Tuesday, Sept. 28, 2021, the Chamber’s Annual Dinner celebrated the business community's resiliency and success with a formal program followed by a kick-up-your-heels celebration. The evening began with a formal program to celebrate the recipients of the Ambassador of the Year Award, Daniel Whitney Award and ATHENA Leadership Award followed by a delicious dinner. Premier party band Brass Differential played throughout the night with some attendees busting a move on the dance floor!

Inspired by the sounds of New Orleans, Brass Differential features a variety of musical sounds including jazz, blues, funk, R&B, soul, hip-hop and many other styles. This 10-piece horn-centered band is guaranteed to please everyone with its abundant solos and abundant musical attitude.
