The Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce held its 17th annual Oyster Roast.

Chamber members and guests headed out to Tubby's Tank House in Thunderbolt for the roast and business connection presented by Bank South.

People WTOC caught up with Thursday night say it's all about networking and relationship building, all while taking in some live music and eating those delicious oysters.

"What people get out of this event is that they are building their business essentially. They're building their relationship with the business community,” said Savannah Chamber Small Business and Events Manager Stephanie Boaen.

"It brings so many different people together in the community as well as the businesses. Tonight I've probably seen four or five people that I haven't seen in over a year and connecting with them makes a big difference,” said Market City President Laura Moore, BankSouth.

Some other event sponsors include Thomas & Hutton and AT&T. In attendance tonight- an estimated total of over 450 people.
