We've Taken Something Wonderful & Made It Even Better! For over 95 years, your Chamber's annual banquet has been a wonderful celebration of business accomplishments and community excellence, and a fun way to socialize with your peers. But, like five-star chambers do, we challenged ourselves to make it better. We asked our members for ideas. We listened. We got creative. And we think you're going to love how we've made it better than ever before! Five Reasons You're Going to Love the 96th Annual Celebration As with all events, the 96th Annual Celebration of Business & Community wouldn't be possible without our sponsors. Our Presenting Sponsors for this year are Walmart-Sam's Club, Sam's Furniture, Everett Buick GMC and Hunt Ventures. Walmart has been creating opportunities and bringing value to customers and communities around the globe since 1963. The largest company by revenue in the world, they operate over 11,500 retail units in 28 countries and e-commerce websites in 11 countries. Walmart employs 2.3 million associates around the world — 1.5 million in the U.S. alone. Sam's Club has been a valuable Chamber member since 2009.
