The annual Community Awards Banquet is steeped in rich tradition and history of almost 100 years. The awards we present recognize outstanding businesses and individuals who are a positive influence in our community. The public is invited to submit nominations for the "Best of Tuolumne County Awards." The chamber has presented these awards since 1921 at the banquet, which will be held Thursday, November 21, 2019, at the Hotel at Black Oak Casino Resort from 5:30pm. This formal affair is a night to be remember and the talk of the town for months to come.
The Banquet is also a fundraising event, featuring dinner, music, raffles, live and silent auctions. All proceeds benefit the Tuolumne County Chamber of Commerce, a 501(c)6 non-profit organization dedicated to helping business grow, serving the needs of county business, promoting a thriving economy, and fostering a strong sense of community.
Raising funds allows our organization the opportunity to create new programming in business education and development. This action gives us the unique privilege of facilitating a more viable, long-term economy for our community. A huge portion of funds raised at our events come from auction item sales. If possible, please consider donating a raffle or auction item for the night of our event. In the past, we have included items such as jewelry, electronics, gift cards, airfare, getaway trips, themed baskets, autographed memorabilia, and event tickets.
Additionally, you can show your support by attending The Banquet on Thursday, November 21 at the Hotel at Black Oak Casino Resort. Ticket sale proceeds go toward the organization and allow us to further develop our business education and advocacy programs and resources.
