Chamber awards show is coming Friday

The Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce will honor businesses, industries, nonprofits and schools at its annual Chamber Celebration on Friday night at the RiverPark Center.

The event, sponsored by Owensboro Health, starts at 6 p.m. with a reception catered by Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn.

At 7:30 p.m., the awards presentation begins in Cannon Hall.

Candance Brake, chamber president, said the program should last about an hour.

“An exclusive after-party,” sponsored by UniFirst Corp., will follow in the Jody Berry Theatre, with dancing and crafted cocktails.

Brake said there will be “something exciting to be experienced.”

People will have to wait until then to find out what it is, she said.

The after-party should end around 10:30 p.m., Brake said.

The Chamber Celebration is open to the public.

Tickets are $50 and are available by calling the chamber at 270-926-1860.

They will also be available at the RiverPark Center on Friday night.
