On December 3, the Rockville Chamber of Commerce hosted its RCC Rockstar Awards. Although the celebration was a little different this year, the Rockville Chamber and iHeartRadio’s BIG100 presented a creative, fun and highly interactive event to the 2020 winners.
The event featured a classic rock trivia contest hosted by BIG100’s midday on-air personality, Lisa Berigan and lots of door prizes. The “Best Dressed Rocker” contest judged by Victoria Jones of DC Radio Company awarded an autographed electric guitar from the world-famous Trans-Siberian Orchestra. All attendees were entered in the evening’s grand prize drawing and the winner received two domestic round trip airline tickets, compliments of Omega World Travel.
