2018’s Libby Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual fundraising dinner was held on Saturday, Jan. 20. This year’s event was a deviation from prior events with a theme of games rather than football. The event was enjoyed by a sold-out crowd. Numerous awards and honors were also handed out at the event. Photos courtesy of Dusti Thompson.
