Over two hundred community members spent the evening celebrating Pierce County in grand style thanks to Kas Asbury and the Okefenokee Country Club staff! 2015 was a great year at the Pierce County Chamber, and 2016 is shaping up to be even better.

Gala guests were greeted by St. Illa Cotillion Assistants, Ivy Young and Zane Markle and their fearless leaders, David and Sara Rollison. W e were honored to have special guest, Congressman Buddy Carter with us. Lo vely models from Run N Chase and their beautiful mentor, Kim Stephens, were on hand to welcome the party goers, and  Gatsby inspired music was provided by David Jackson, Mary Beth Butler, and Kellie Justice.

The Chamber acknowledged the dedication and service of retiring board members - Jon Tindall, Chris Sinclair, Stephen James, and Jonathan Coleman and recognized the hard work and enthusiasm of the Chamber Ambassadors.

Attendees were captivated by gorgeous food displays, period cars on loan from Eddie Wheeler and Don Mathie, a silent  auction and casino, lively entertainment, and the stunning d├ęcor - and all of it for our Community Award Recipients and Leadership Pierce Graduates! Thank you for making Pierce County a great place in which to live!
