Emergency Hospital Systems was the presenting sponsor of the 2022 Annual Awards Banquet hosted by the Greater Cleveland Chamber of Commerce on January 22 at the city’s Civic Center.
This year’s theme was the “Roaring Twenties”. Attendees had a great time going back in time to wear 1920s attire. Many women dressed in flapper dresses and wore feathered headbands while the men were seen in gangster suits and vests, all which made this a unique event that will be remembered for a long time.
The evening featured plenty of entertainment including a silent auction, mystery gift boxes, photo booth, ` live music with the Houston Wise Guys, a gourmet dinner featuring foods from the 1920s, and two dance contests: the “Charleston Dance Contest” and the “Best Dressed”. Prizes were awarded to the best dancers and to those who wore the best 20s outfits.
The Annual Awards Banquet is hosted each year by the Greater Cleveland Chamber of Commerce to honor members who have gone above and beyond to serve the Cleveland community. This year’s winners included: Austin Bank for Business of the Year, Rev. Carl Williamson for Citizen of the Year, Raylene Atkinson for Ambassador of the Year, Regina Vollmer for Jean Noble McAdams Volunteer of the Year, and Sandy Williamson for President’s Choice.
We are very proud to support the Greater Cleveland Chamber of Commerce in organizing events that strengthen and keep the community together.
Congratulations to the Stars of 2021!
