The DBCC Annual Awards Banquet is the highlight of the chamber’s annual event line up as it serves to provide a progress report on the chamber for the year as well as to acknowledge those chamber members, sponsors and supporters who have gone above and beyond to support the chamber in its community efforts.
The banquet draws over 1,000 attendees annually and will this year feature the special presentation of the Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce / Thomas L. Houston Community Service Award to honor individuals who have made significant volunteer contributions to the civic enhancements of Dallas’ African American community. The award was recently renamed to honor the memory of former DBCC President, Thomas L. Houston, who served from 1982 to 1995, for the many years of service and dedication he gave to the Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce and the African-American community.
Seating is limited! Tickets for the banquet are $75.00 each, a small business table of ten (10) is $750.00 and a corporate table of ten (10) is $1,500.
