COLUMBIA, S.C. – Kambrell Garvin and Seth Rose, two freshman State Representatives from Richland County, will deliver keynote remarks on Wednesday, April 24 when the Columbia Council of Neighborhoods hosts its Annual Banquet and Awards Ceremony.
The event will be held in the Richland Ballroom of the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center, located on Lincoln Street. Doors open at 6 p.m. and dinner service begins at 6:30 p.m. Tickets for the event cost $30 per person. Tables of 8 can be purchased for a total of $200.
At this event, CCN will induct three new members into the Columbia Neighborhood Hall of Fame, as well as present its five annual awards – the Award of Special Recognition, CCN Friend of the Year, Neighborhood Program of the Year, Neighborhood Volunteer of the Year, and Neighborhood of the Year. The Columbia Neighborhood Hall of Fame was created in 2008, and more than 50 people have been inducted the past 11 years.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for all communities to come together and celebrate the achievements of our many neighborhoods and dedicated volunteers here in Columbia,” said CCN President Tige Watts. “Additionally, our guests can look forward to compelling and thought-provoking remarks from our two keynotes – Representatives Garvin and Rose – to reinforce our theme that ‘Real Change Begins at Home.’”
Tickets for the banquet can be purchased through CCN’s web site at www.ColumbiaSCneighborhoods.com. They can also be purchased by calling CCN Treasurer Fred Hornick at 803.920.7605. Tickets can also be purchased at the door; however, organizers remind potential guests limited seating is available.
When it began in 1978, CCN consisted of less than 15 neighborhoods. Today, more than 120 neighborhoods in the City of Columbia belong to the umbrella organization. CCN’s mission is to honor, empower, assist and reach out to neighborhoods, residents and communities across the City of Columbia and beyond.
