Enjoy an evening out celebrating Mt. Pleasant's finest!

In 1957, the Mt. Pleasant Area Chamber of Commerce began what would become a time-honored tradition, which has continued to this day, to honor Mt. Pleasant’s exceptional citizens. Held each year in early March, this community-focused event honors outstanding volunteers from local service clubs and organizations for excellence in service and leadership. The event was recently expanded to honor a large and small business, and a local young professional who have demonstrated outstanding commitment and service to the community. The Chamber’s highest honor, the Citizen of the Year Award, is the highlight of the evening as it is a surprise to the recipient and all attendees.

Event Features: Cocktail Reception, Cash Bar, Awards Program, Dinner, Dessert, chance to win a half carat diamond, Live Entertainment and Dancing! Business formal/semiformal attire recommended.
