The Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce will host its annual membership dinner and awards ceremony on Friday, January 19th at The Regent. This year's program says, "Welcome Aboard the Member Ship," with a nautical theme to help get you in the mood for Gasparilla a week early. The event is open to both members and non-members of the Chamber of Commerce. Early-bird tickets for non-members currently priced at $50 (prices go up as of January 13) and you can reserve a table for a group of eight for $450. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. and dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. However, make sure to arrive before dinner begins, as there is a table decorating contest with the nautical theme. Attendees are invited to dress in cruise ship attire.
