Chamber holds Red Tie Gala


Nearly 170 people attended last Friday’s Red Tie Gala, the Woodford County Chamber of Commerce’s annual awards dinner and fundraiser, at The Galerie in downtown Versailles.

Among the attendees were members of Chamber businesses, Chamber Award and Agriculture Award winners, and community members, who enjoyed food, drinks, and mingling, as well as silent and live auctions.

The Agriculture Awards, given by the Woodford County Agricultural Development Board and Woodford County Extension District Board, were announced first, and include Outstanding Farmer of the Year (Adam Mitchell) and Distinguished Farmer of the Year (Debby Prewitt).

The Annual Chamber Awards, given by the Woodford County Chamber of Commerce, include the Business Impact Award (Holiday Inn Express & Suites), Business of the Year Award (Midway Business Association), Tourism Achievement Award (The Kentucky Castle), New Business of the Year (Versailles Brewing Company), and the Legacy Award (Woodford County Judge Executive John Coyle).

The night was rounded out by a lively live auction, where seven large packages were auctioned off. The Chamber of Commerce is very appreciative of all of the sponsors and local businesses that donated items and volunteered their time to make this event a success.
