Mark your calendars for McAllen’s prestigious event of the year, the 67th Annual Banquet “Man & Woman of the Year” Awards. The event is scheduled for Thursday, November 3 from 6:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. This year, the Chamber will be celebrating a “Black & White Masquerade Ball.” As customary, the Volunteer of the Year award will be a surprise announced at the event. To add to the excitement, this year we will again present a Lifetime Achievement Award. This award was last presented to Mr. Glen Roney in 2015. The recipient will be announced at a later date.
