Chamber of Commerce Dinner and Auction | Kathy Jennings Photography


The 82nd Annual Chamber of Commerce Dinner and Auction was held on Saturday at Washington and Lee University Evans Hall.  The theme of this year’s event was “Gatsby Gala”.  The evening was packed with activities featuring a silent auction, games, dinner, awarding of the 2019 Business Individual of the Year, a live auction, a photo booth and finally dancing the night away with entertainment featuring “Another Level”.
