Chamber Golf Tournament Winners
The overall winners of the 17th Annual Chamber Golf Tournament came from the Cook's Pest Control Team of (l-r) Roy Kent, Charlie Angel, Mark Baron, & Robby Cole, pictured with Golf Committee Chairman Joe DiBenedetto. They had a team score of 55. Charlie Angel also had closest-to-the-pin on Par 3 Hole Number 3, hitting his tee shot within two feet of the pin. The Golf Tournament Raffle raised approximately $2,500.00 this year, due in large part to the great prizes offered by the biggest sponsors. The Grand Prize was donated by The Wynfrey Hotel, with a 2-Night Stay and a $150.00 Gift Card to Shula's Steakhouse, donated by General Manager Andy Peters. Andy is on both the Chamber Board of Directors and Board of Trustees as a member of the Presidents Circle.
Gary Wright of Cadence Bank on President's Circle
Gary Wright of Cadence Bank decided to move up to the Presidents Circle on the Board of Trustees, the highest level of membership of the Hoover Area Chamber of Commerce when this level was created some five years ago. This is a higher membership recognition level that includes such benefits as:
- a display ad on the bottom of the 3-page newspaper ad in both The Shelby County Reporter and The Birmingham News in February of each year ($800.00 Value)
- Platinum Sponsorship recognition in the Miss Hoover Pageant ($1,000.00 Value)
- Platinum Presidents Circle sponsorship with 4 players in the Chamber Golf Tournament, with Hole Sponsorship designating Presidents Circle sponsorship ($1,250.00 Value)
- A display ad on the Chamber website ($300.00 Value)
- Separate Photo Listing with past Chamber Presidents on the website and Hoover Magazine as Presidents Circle Members on the Board of Trustees (Priceless!)
- Special Name tag with Presidents Circle Designation
- VIP seating for Presidents Circle Members at the annual Mayor's Prayer Breakfast
- Special Seating at Chamber Luncheons included all year. ($185.00 Value)
- All this is in addition to the regular Board of Trustee Dues level of only $1,000.00 per year.
This level makes Cadence Bank one of the biggest sponsors of the Hoover Area Chamber of Commerce, and helps us to keep our dues level among the lowest in the region for the small business owner.
