In the midst of pushing for a new economic sales tax proponents say will revitalize the city, many members of the local business community took Friday night off to celebrate another year.

The Jefferson City Area Chamber of Commerce celebrated its 2012 Gala Event on Friday at the Capitol Plaza Hotel, focusing on a theme of "Cheers to the Future."

Each year the chamber takes the opportunity to honor several members of the community with its three annual awards - the Chairman's Award, the William W. Quigg Award and the Chamber Meritorious Civic Service Award - but this year one more category was added to the presentations.
