Legends Ball

The Chamber’s premiere year-end gala celebrates the best of Hudson County and has become the County's informal "hall of fame".  Leaders, innovators and socially responsible members of the business community who have made a significant impact and thus helped to raise the visibility of Hudson County are recognized by the Chamber as Legends and honored before an audience of more than 300.  Typically held in the fall, the Legends Ball is also an opportunity for the Chamber’s diverse membership to re-cap the year’s events and celebrate the holiday season.

The 9th Legends Ball is scheduled for Thursday, December 8, 2016.  Attendees will enjoy an opening cocktail reception, buffet dinner and awards program; music by the NJCU Jazz Ensemble and a Silent Auction.  Sponsorships, individual tickets, ad journal and donation opportunities are available.
