All that sparkles is gold…
It is time to once again honor business owners in our community at our annual Sparkle and Shine black tie optional gala. Title sponsor Caldwell Insurance Agency is back again this year and partnering with Bear Paw Painters. We will gather and announce business awards on Saturday, November 5th at the Evergreen Lake House.
In addition to so many of our business owners being in one place to celebrate together, we have added excitement this year with a guest celebrity chef preparing the food for the evening.
Chef Kent Rathbun, chefkentrathbun.com, will be traveling to Evergreen to cook with his good friend, Glen Fountain, owner of Fountain Barbecue who was the winner of the Best Savory Bite at the 2022 Taste of Evergreen. Chef Rathbun has cooked for Queen Elizabeth, the 2001 Bush Inaugural Ball, and Oprah. In 2008, he competed on Food Network’s hit series “Iron Chef America” and defeated grill master Bobby Flay. We are so thrilled to enjoy the menu he and Glen will be preparing for us. If you would like to join us, visit evergreenchamber.org for more details and tickets.
The focus of the evening will be on celebrating our business owners. While the voting has concluded, I still want to share with you who the nominees are so you can congratulate them while you are out and about in our community.

Santa is coming to town….
Santa is coming to Evergreen at four Santa Breakfasts being hosted by four of our amazing local restaurants. November 26 we will kick off the season with breakfast at Troutdale Tavern. We then continue on December 3 at Lariat Lodge followed by the Woodcellar Bar and Grill on December 10 and finishing on December 17 at The Wild Game. Santa will then need to return to the North Pole in order to get ready for the big day! Everyone who attends a breakfast, young and young at heart, will have as much time as they need to visit with Santa and have their photo taken with him. The breakfast buffet at each location will be the same so you can choose the date and location that works best for you!
Tickets will be available on November 1 at evergreenchamber.org This is a special event with limited seating at each location so all who attend must have a ticket.
