November 17, Central Fort Bend Chamber’s Young Professionals Committee hosted “Kick-off to an Americana Holiday”, a networking event sponsored by Gallery Furniture. Over 40 young professionals attended to “kick-off” the start of the holiday season while getting to know one another and the services their businesses provide in the community.

Gallery Furniture, Grand Parkway location, and adjoining Brick & Mortar Kitchen provided the appetizers and beverages. Best in Texas DJs supplied easy-going music. The entire ensemble delivered great ambiance for the young professionals of the evening.

Michaela Filla, Young Professionals Chair-Elect, Fort Bend Country Club, addressed the crowd to explain the committees’ purpose and encouraging everyone to bring creative and fresh ideas in the new year ahead.

Filla and Jeff Cannon, LJA Engineering, Inc., announced the winners of the door prizes that were donated for the evening by Sterling McCall Lexus, Brandi Anderson Photography, and Fort Bend Cares.
