“Other live and silent auction items donated included oil changes, gift cards and certificates, auto details, TV and a Keurig coffee machine, to name a few generous donations,” McNutt said, adding that all donors and recipients will be listed on the chamber website next week.
McNutt said the dessert auction was awesome again this year.
“I don’t know how many cakes there were. We had lots of pies this year in addition to the many cakes, cookies and cake balls donated by many community members. It was a delicious way to earn a little extra money for the chamber. I appreciate all the donations.”
Sullivan and Darry Stacy, county commissioners, and Dist. 20 Rep. Bobby Cleveland, several Noble City council members and Mayor Mark Easton attended the gala.
Stead presented the following awards:
· Matt Branstetter of Braevest Investments won Volunteer of the Year.
· Bob Wade won Chamber Member of the Year.
· MJ Brienan of Back Office Success and Karen Weigel Primrose Funeral Services won Above and Beyond Awards.
