Join us this year as our honorary chairs join the Chamber and its members to salute the achievements of our Pinnacle Award recipients as well as those of local business leaders whose impact on our community is especially noteworthy. The evening’s festivities will include live entertainment, an elegant meal, and more.

As we commemorate the GHBC’s 84th year of service to our members and the consumers they serve, we take pride in the expansion of our outreach and our enhanced ability to anticipate and address the needs and growth of our members and their business operations.

The Chamber’s mission is to provide advocacy, awareness and access to African-American businesses within our community and this gala is the ultimate celebration of the collective successes of our GHBC members and sponsors.

GHBC hopes to continue to impact African American business for years to come, and we are excited to celebrate this momentous occasion yet again.
