Members and guests of ChamberSouth are set to salute the outgoing chair of ChamberSouth, Joseph R. Gallaher, and honor incoming chair Ken Kistner at the 87th annual Chairman’s Reception on Friday, Oct. 20, 6:30-11 p.m., at the Mayfair Hotel & Spa in Coconut Grove.
The event was rescheduled from September due to Hurricane Irma.
Billed as the “Chairman’s Red, White, and Blue Reception,” this all-American-themed gala, presented by Baptist Health South Florida, is a veritable Who’s Who of business leaders, public officials, and other South-Dade luminaries. The program features a silent auction, cocktails, dinner (starting at 8 p.m.), and dancing.
“I am humbled and honored by the opportunity to serve as the new chairman of ChamberSouth,” said Ken Kistner, with CBT College and long-time ChamberSouth board member. “I only hope that I can serve the South-Dade community and businesses we serve with the same energy, enthusiasm, and professionalism exhibited by our outgoing chair, Joe Gallaher.”
The Mayfair Hotel is located at 3000 Florida Ave. in Coconut Grove. For sponsorship information and to RSVP, contact ChamberSouth by calling 305-661-1621 or by visiting the Chamber website at www.chambersouth.com.
