Last February we made the decision to postpone our annual Chairman’s Gala due to lingering COVID concerns and restrictions. Like so many, we focused forward, searched for the perfect venue, and committed to an in-person celebration on May 21, 2021.

This past Friday, we held our Blue Jean Ball presented by improving – Atlanta at the beautiful Reid Barn and had an incredible evening celebrating the Alpharetta Chamber, Board of Directors, members, community leaders, and many special friends and guests.  A huge thank you to Scott McMichael and improving – Atlanta for being our Presenting Sponsor! Scott is incredibly talented and shared his official auctioneer skills with us during the “live” portion of the program. Chairman of the Board, Dr. Alex Paulk presented the 2020 award winners: Ambassador of the Year to Emily Rowell, Affinity Award to Michael Gordy, Community Award to Dana Cox, and Prosperity Award to Scott McMichael. Additional sponsors to thank include Community Partner Sponsor – Alpharetta CVB, Spirit Sponsor - Envision Office Solutions, Silver Sponsors – mPoweredIT, and Fulton Science Academy, Bronze Sponsors - Pedego Electric Bikes, Fulton County Commissioner Liz Hausmann, Friends of the Chamber Sponsors – AJW Designs, Anchor Marketing, and Joel & Granot. I also want to personally thank Melody Cookson, Member Services Coordinator and her volunteer team, Ann Wisniewski, Victoria Webster, Faye Smith, Hilda Anderson, Francesca Connolly, and Emily Rowell.

Let this be the beginning of many more in person celebrations - Here’s to business in Alpharetta!
