The Knoxville Chamber will host the Ninth Annual Peelin’, Eatin’, and Politickin’ Shrimp Boil on June 15 at Jackson Terminal.
The casual event gives top business and community leaders the chance to relax and enjoy great food, listen to music, and network with local and state elected officials. Last year’s event drew nearly 200 people.
“This event is a fun and informal way for members to get to know elected officials, as well as candidates for office in upcoming elections,” said Amy Nolan, vice president of public policy for the Chamber. “It’s also our way of saying ‘thank you’ for their willingness to listen and engage with the business community.”
Admission for the event is $35 for Chamber members and $45 for non-members. VIP tables of eight are available to Chamber members for $350 each, including a table sign displaying the company logo, two drink tickets per guest, a bucket of bottled beer, and a family-style shrimp boil spread at your table.
