This photo illustrates the diverse talents of Scot Langdon from Longhill Photography. In 2016, Tulley was the show's premier sponsor. If our Premier Sponsor is an auto dealer, we can feature up to three vehicles. This can provide significant visibility for this sponsorship level.
Taking a break from brewing is Carl Soderberg and Mike Frizzelle from Able Ebenezer Brewing. We hope they'll model again for us in 2018!
Above are the wonderful volunteer make-up artists from Mary Kay Cosmetics. On the right is Joyce Young, independent contractor and recent nominee for the Chamber's small business Excellence Award in 2017. It takes many hands to prep our models.
