Chamber gala to toast local businesses

NATCHEZ — Local business owners and supporters will lift their glasses and toast to business at this year’s Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce Annual Gala.

Chamber President Debbie Hudson said the gala’s “Toast to Business” theme this year is inspired by the local businesses that work together for progress in the area.

“It’s our way of toasting to each other as a business community because it takes all of our efforts, all of us together, to make our community work,” she said.

The highlight of the gala, Hudson said, will be guest speaker Robert St. John, a restaurateur, chef, food columnist and author, who will talk about “eating his way to happiness.”

Two Natchezians of the Year, a man and a woman, will be named at the gala. Awards will also be given to the large and small businesses of the year.

The gala will also feature music by The Donna Schaffer Trio and a silent auction.

The gala will begin at 6 p.m. Monday at the Natchez Convention Center.
