112th Annual Dinner “Grand Slam Celebration”

For the past 112 years, GMA has been kicking off the New Year with the Annual Dinner. The evening begins with the cocktail reception where attendees mix & mingle with fellow GMA members and civic leaders. Attendees then enjoy a delicious sit down dinner, followed by the passing of the gavel to our incoming Board Chair. The evening concludes with entertainment from a special guest speaker. Past speakers have included boxing Legend Sugar Ray Leonard, Baseball’s “Greatest Catcher” Johnny Bench, NASCAR Legends Dale Jarrett and Kyle Petty, and NFL Hall-of-Famers Terry Bradshaw and Herschel Walker. This is THE event of the year! Don’t miss it!
