    The Greater Reading Chamber of Commerce & Industry is proud to welcome history-making U.S. Astronaut Captain Scott Kelly to the Annual Dinner. Back from his historic record-breaking Year In Space, NASA astronaut Captain Scott Kelly has laid the ground-work for the future of space travel and exploration, and continues to garner media exposure like no other pioneer of our time.

    With life lessons and personal stories that reveal unique and valuable advice on pushing one's own limits, to insight on the leadership and teamwork required in such demanding conditions,  Kelly reflects on the choices that paved his journey’s path. Kelly’s hugely anticipated memoir recently optioned by Sony Pictures, Endurance: My Year in Space and Our Journey to Mars, is due out this fall.

    Please join us for this fantastic evening and celebrate the award recipients of the Greater Reading Top Business and the Entrepreneurial Excellence Awards.  The evening promises to be filled with fun entertainment, great food and the opportunity to network with over 800 of your closest friends.  

    Cost - $150.00 per person
