We were pleased to announce the awards finalists for the 2015 Gala. Today, we would like to announce a special part of our awards program. The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that we will be honoring Emanuel A.M.E. Church with our Excellence in Community Diversity Award. As we salute business and community leaders this year, we believe there is no finer group to be recognized for leadership than those at Mother Emanuel in Charleston. The love, grace, and strength the Church has shown in the face of an unthinkable tragedy represents the very best of our South Carolina communities. We are proud to announce this special part of our program; you may see a list of all of our finalists is below.
Hit the red carpet and mingle with fellow Chamber members while you enjoy fantastic food and drink. Festivities start with a reception and silent auction at 6pm followed by the dinner and soulful stage entertainment featuring the Mighty Kicks. Reservations are required ($125 for members). The dress is black tie optional. Sponsorships are still available.
