Banquet Sponsorship


It’s also not too early to get your tables for the annual Chamber banquet. Tables for 10 are $500 and will include sponsorship recognition. This banquet is usually a sell out, so get your sponsorships and tickets early!

First Responders Banquet

The annual First Responders Appreciation Banquet, presented by One Church, is set for Thursday, Jan. 4, at the Hopkins County Civic Center.

All first responders in the county are invited to attend, and the community is encouraged to help show their appreciation with gift cards and door prizes. Prizes will be given to those in attendance.

For more information on how to help sponsor the appreciation banquet, call the Chamber at 903-885-6515 or email info@hopkinschamber.org.
