Kansas Crossing Casino + Hotel to Host Chamber Banquet
Outdoor Event Slated for August 20
The Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that one of the area’s most anticipated annual events will move to one of the area’s newest event venues this year. The chamber’s annual banquet, which serves as a celebration of the many businesses and individuals that make the Pittsburg area great, will be hosted this year by Kansas Crossing Casino + Hotel. The event has been scheduled for the evening of Thursday, August 20.
The banquet will be held in the casino’s outdoor entertainment venue, which will allow for appropriate safety precautions to include proper social distancing. This will mark the first time the event has featured an outdoor format.
“We’re excited to bring our event to Kansas Crossing Casino + Hotel,“ said Chamber President Blake Benson. “With everything our community has been through this year, it’s never been more important to recognize those working to make this area stronger each and every day. We also appreciate Pittsburg State University for hosting our event for the past several years, and understand the difficulties around large indoor events at this time.”
The banquet will be held in accordance with state and local health guidelines, and officials will be closely monitoring COVID-19 related activity leading up to the event.
