It’s a magnificent evening and a can’t miss event. Once again, the team at News Channel 11 and ABC Tri-Cities is truly honored and thrilled to serve as host for this affair…now for our nineteenth consecutive year.”
The theme for this year’s event is “Celebrating The Kingsport Spirit!”
“We are very excited Party on the Moon is back…we just keep a good thing going…or playing as the case may be,” Kingsport Chamber President & CEO Miles Burdine said. “Your Kingsport Chamber continues to be a sold-out, highly anticipated event. We are most grateful to the superb support of our sponsors and the 1,700-plus individuals who attend. As our major fundraiser, this dinner is very important to us.
