Gonzales Chamber of Commerce 100th anniversary celebration moves to April 7


The Gonzales Chamber of Commerce began a century of support for local businesses in February of 1922. Although a 100th anniversary banquet had been planned for this coming February, it was postponed due to safety concerns relating to COVID-19. The banquet has been rescheduled for April 7 from 6 to 9:00 p.m.  

“We’re really excited to celebrate our 100th anniversary with our member businesses as we’re looking forward to reaching this milestone. We hope you can join us for an evening of fun and good food,” said Gonzales Chamber of Commerce & Agriculture/ Visitor Center Executive Director Brad Cox. 

According to Cox, Gold First Shot Tables are $550, Silver Tables are $450, Entertainment Sponsor is $250, individual member tickets are $35. Individual Non-member tickets are $45. 

The evening will include a live auction and music. 

“We are fortunate to have Egon Barthels as our Emcee, JD Shelton as auctioneer, and Don Page as our deejay,” said Cox.   

The historic mission of the chamber of commerce has expanded and its ongoing mission includes  promoting member businesses, welcoming visitors, distributing tourism information packets and answering a range of calls.  The Chamber puts on the annual Come and Take It Celebration each October and assists with city and county events.  The Chamber serves as an influential voice promoting the well-being of the local business environment and provides networking and volunteer opportunities for its members and continues to be a vital community resource.
