Imagine…as you arrived at the entrance of the building, you are welcomed by a red carpet complete with live interviews, photographers and local celebrities. You saw people dressed in red carpet attire looking like A list celebrities. It was an event that was quoted as being a night this city will never forget by multiple people in attendance.
The Missing Plug Award Show was created to honor the different community leaders, entrepreneurs and artists throughout the city of Chester. This award show spotlighted the beauty, hard work, talent, and teamwork that the city of Chester has to offer.
It was truly an awe-inspiring event. Walking in you received nothing but love, similes, and encouragement from all in attendance. The excitement of honoring all the different hard workers from all over the city filled the room. Community activist and entrepreneur Cory Long quoted “The Award Show is (a) great way to show unity and appreciation for the people that work hard to improve the culture and quality of life in Chester.” The show was completed with live performances from Jamai, Zaje, TYE, and so much more.
