The Collierville Chamber of Commerce hosted the 2017 Fabulous Awards Gala on Saturday at TPC Southwind. The event had a Las Vegas theme. Attendees used “play chips” to play craps, blackjack, poker and roulette. There was also a silent auction, bourbon tasting and a wine pull. Live entertainment was provided by impersonators like Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Donny & Marie, Celine Dion Debbie Reynold and Elvis. After the games were played, Don Bassett was named the 2016 Person of the Year, New Day Children’s Theatre was named Non-Profit of the Year, My Town Movers was named Entrepreneur of the Year and The Spirit of Collierville Award went to John Green & Company Realtors.
