Chamber event revisits the ’80s, breaks record

The Dairy Barn Arts Center looked like a scene out of a Culture Club music video Tuesday evening as business people assembled in their best 1980s garb for the 17th annual Athens Area Chamber of Commerce Steak Fry and Live Auction.
The evening was full of leg warmers, parachute pants, steak, leopard print, big hair, vacation getaways, sporting event tickets and even a sequined prom dress during the annual fundraiser to benefit the chamber of commerce. This year’s theme was the 1980s.
According to Chamber President Wendy Jakmas, this event had a record-breaking cash sponsorship of $17,100, breaking last year’s record by $3,100.
