On Saturday, December 8, the Anthem Area Chamber of Commerce will once again roll out the red carpet for nearly 400 area business owners, leaders and residents for the 15th annual Business Awards ceremony. The black-tie-optional Winter Gala will be held in the Ironwood Ballroom at the Anthem Golf and Country Club, 2708 W. Anthem Club Drive. Valet service and a walk down the red carpet await guests for the sold-out event.

Festivities begin at 5 p.m. with a cocktail hour featuring Champagne, hors d’oeuvres and a live jazz ensemble. Dinner begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by the awards ceremony showcasing the 2018 Business Award nominees. After the 2018 award winners are announced, the party continues as the clubhouse grill transforms into a nightclub and Anthem’s own DJ Hybrid Thirty-3 keeps the dance floor packed into the night.  

The Winter Gala is sponsored by ProSkill Plumbing, Heating & Air; Merrill Gardens at Anthem; Nanette McClelland-Miller State Farm Agency; Union Home Mortgage; Rain Man Roofing & Waterproofing Services; Honor Health; Rayne of the North Valley; D.J. Jones Home Team; The Salt Spa; Hair-n-Dipity Salon & Spa; Rosati’s/Game On; Your Health District; Andrew Z Diamonds & Fine Jewelry; Anthem Law and Sam’s Frozen Yogurt.
