North Carolina native, author, humorist, and former Nashville songwriter, Patrick Henry will perform live for one night only at the Chamber of Commerce's 2019 Annual Banquet on Thursday, March 14, 2019! A SiriusXM Radio Family Comedy veteran, Patrick offers a unique blend of humor, music, and inspiration to audiences across the nation. Featured alongside Jeff Foxworthy, Steve Martin, Larry the Cable Guy, and Jeane Robertson on a comedy album, Patrick has been described as, "Too funny for a bathroom break!" and "what happens when keynotes, comedy, and concerts ... collide."
The event is open to the public and will be held at the Chamber and City of Marion's new Municipal Event Center from 5:30- 9 p.m. Expect to laugh, tap your toes and have a memorable evening. We will have delicious, locally-sourced dinner along with beer and wine from XYZ Spirits.
The night of fun will also include the presentation of the prestigious Duke Energy Citizenship Award! The award was conceived in 2004 as a tribute to 'individuals or groups who make a difference in their communities or places of work by using their time, talents and compassion to positively impact the lives of others.' Recipients of the award help foster a culture of citizenship and service that act as a catalyst for others to become involved in civic and social activities. Something the Chamber strongly endorses.
The Corpening Memorial YMCA will be holding a Parent's Night Out childcare that night (March 14th,) to coincide with the Banquet! Parents can utilize their childcare services knowing their kids are safe and be able to have a great time at the event. Families can call 828.559.2404 to make reservations or stop by up until March 13, 2019.
The event is brought to you by the generous sponsorship of Corpening Memorial YMCA. The Citizenship Award is provided by Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC.
