The Beckley Raleigh County Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the organization’s 103rd Annual Dinner & Community Awards Gala to be held on May 9, 2024 at the Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center. The theme will be “Lovely Day” in honor of Bill Withers.   

The Community Awards Gala is a red carpet affair where we will recognize our Prestigious Community Service & Leadership Award recipient.  Since 1991, this award has been given annually to the business leader or organization who has most positively impacted the community through their excellence in business leadership and community service over their lifetime. This year’s recipient is The Friends of Coal Ladies’ Auxiliary.

We will also recognize several other individuals for their outstanding work over the years.  Other award categories include: Hometown Legend, Selfless Volunteer, Mover of Mountains, Iron Pillar, Outstanding Contribution to The Arts, Partner in Education and Youth Leadership.

The Friends of Coal Ladies Auxiliary was founded in 2007 by Regina Fairchild. There were initially 2,000 members located in West Virginia, but because of the dedicated support and positive feedback from families and individuals, the Friends of Coal Ladies Auxiliary has grown into a nationwide organization of thousands of members.  This non-profit organization, headquartered in Beckley, WV, seeks to inform those about the importance of coal and to support coal miners and their families. They are active participants in charity, supporting troops with donations of food and supplies, supporting local conservation projects, and awarding college scholarships to local students.
