A Magical Evening featuring Magician, Scott Alexander at Flagship Cinemas
On January 25, 2023 from 6 - 9pm, over 80 business leaders joined us at Flagship Cinemas for A Magical Evening, consisting of announcing our Business award winners and installation of new Chamber board members, as pictured. We also had an amazing magic show where nationally known, Baltimore native magician Scott Alexander performed. He delivered a spectacle of a show that left us holding our sides from comedy and on the edge of our seats from the mystic experience. According to all who attended, the food, the show, the atmosphere, and the event itself all can described by 2 words: Truly Magical. Thank you to all those who joined us this year, and we hope to see you next year.
