A sell-out crowd is expected for Tuesday night's annual Graham Chamber of Commerce banquet. The event kicks off at 6 o'clock with the always popular “Taste of Graham” competition.

Seventeen vendors will offer samplings of their signature dishes to the crowd, for a chance at bragging rights in several categories including Judge's Choice, People's Choice, and Best Presentation. Of course another highlight of the evening is the presentation of the annual Grahammy Awards.

These awards recognize those who have given their time and support through volunteer work, community support, and commerce. The honors are handed out for Citizen of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Business of the Year, President's Choice, and Graham Salt Works Award. It all gets underway at 6:00 tonight at the Young County Arena.

Check out coverage of the event in this weekend's Graham Leader, as well as updates on award winners in the Wednesday edition.
