Chamber's Annual Dinner to feature Cyrus Steele

Posted: Friday, November 30, 2018

The 95th Annual Huntington County Chamber of Commerce Dinner will be held Monday evening, January 21, 2019 at the PAL Club, 2099 Riverside Drive. The event will begin with a social time at 6 p.m. followed by dinner catered by Kim’s Katered Affair at 6:45 p.m.

The Chamber will hold its annual meeting where retiring members of the board and incoming board members will be recognized. The Chamber will also honor the Volunteer of the Year, Ambassador of the Year and present the Community Excellence Award. Comedian and impressionist Cyrus Steele will be the featured entertainer for the evening.

Steele was selected by HBO for the Comedy Wings Competition, as part of the American Black Film Festival where Steele has been performing onstage for years, but fell in love with stand-up comedy soon after graduating from college. Growing up in the small town of Savannah, Georgia, Steele moved to Atlanta in 2005.

Steele quickly established himself as one of Atlanta’s top comics and a master impressionist, imitating everyone from Kevin Hart, Jerry Seinfeld, Martin Luther King, Bill Cosby to Barack Obama and even Donald Trump. Dedicated to giving his audience more than a show, in addition to being a part of HBO’s Comedy Wings Competition, Steele most recently has performed for FOX’s “Showtime at the Apollo” and NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”

The cost for the event is $35 per person. To make your reservations and meal selections for the Chamber Annual Dinner, RSVP by sending in your reply invitation, call the Chamber office at (260) 356-5300 or e-mail skimmel@huntington-chamber.com by Friday, January 11, 2019.
