Hosted by the Martinsville Chamber and the Martinsville Rotary Club, the March 15th State of the City event was a fun evening of networking that included a delicious dinner provided by Heavenly Helpings, Mayor Kenny Costin’s State of the City interview, Chamber award presentations, and a variety of popular auction items.

This annual event is also the largest fundraiser for both the Chamber and the Rotary Club. Net proceeds help support the community initiatives of both organizations, as well as provide a contribution to the mayorโ€™s choice of a charitable organization. This year Mayor Costin chose to make this special donation of $1,500 to the Desert Rose Foundation.

Jonathan Presley, Rotary president (L), and Darcy Quakenbush, Martinsville Chamber Board Chair (R), join Mayor Kenny Costin as he presents check to John Kochanczyk, Desert Rose.
