Celebrate the Industry: SEMA Installation Banquet & Gala Fundraiser
SEMA will host its annual Installation Banquet & Gala Fundraiser, Friday, July 26, at the Sheraton Fairplex Hotel & Conference Center in Pomona, California. The annual event is well attended by automotive professionals and recognizes the newest Board members, while honoring the 2013 SEMA Hall of Fame inductees.
“The annual installation banquet is a chance to honor our newly elected Board of Directors as well as our Hall of Fame members,” said Chris Kersting, SEMA president and CEO. “The fact that we are able to support SEMA’s selected charitable organizations is an added bonus and something we are proud to sponsor.”
The banquet is open to all industry professionals and begins at 6:00 p.m. with cocktails. Immediately following is a sit-down dinner where the 2013 SEMA Hall of Fame members are introduced alongside the newly elected SEMA Board of Directors, who will be sworn in as part of the official program. The 2013 SEMA Hall of Fame inductees are George Barris, Eric Grant, Wade Kawasaki and “Gentleman Joe” Schubeck.
