Portland Rotary To Roast Chamber President Sherri Ferguson At Fundraising Dinner
PORTLAND TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – What better way to raise money for a local charity than a good old fashioned roast.
The term “Roast” conjures up memories of the old Dean Martin Celebrity Roast. It’s a tradition that goes as far back as anyone can remember. It’s an opportunity to poke fun of someone that everyone knows and respects. That is exactly what Sherri Ferguson – President & CEO of the Portland Chamber of Commerce has signed up for. There will be many speakers telling funny stories, secrets and honoring Sherri.
“Join us for the Second Annual Rotary Roast honoring the fearless leader of Portland’s Chamber of Commerce, Sherri Ferguson! Join us on Leap Day, Feb 29th, 2020 for a great meal, plenty of laughs and to support an amazing cause. This is a fundraising event for the Portland Rotary Club.”
Hosted by Clark Shifflett & Paul Fuqua
