2017 Flora Chamber Annual Banquet

Make plans for the 2017 FACC Annual Banquet on Tuesday, February 28th at The Gin in Flora. This year’s keynote speaker will be Ted Dibiase, Jr.

Ted is an American entrepreneur, actor and retired professional wrestler, best known for his time with WWE.

After being trained by Chris Youngblood and Harley Race’s Wrestling Academy, DiBiase made his professional wrestling debut in 2006. He won the Fusion Pro Tag Team Championship with his brother Mike DiBiase in February 2007, and also toured Japan with Pro Wrestling Noah. He signed a developmental contract with WWE in July 2007, and was assigned to their developmental facility, Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), where he won the FCW Southern Heavyweight Championship in December 2007. Due to injury, he relinquished the championship in January 2008.

He made his WWE television debut on May 26, 2008, and quickly formed a tag team with Cody Rhodes. The duo won the World Tag Team Championship twice before forming The Legacy faction alongside Randy Orton. Following The Legacy’s dissolution, DiBiase moved into singles competition and received the Million Dollar Championship from his father Ted DiBiase. DiBiase left WWE in 2013 due to family commitments and other business pursuits.

Aside from professional wrestling, DiBiase is also an actor, making his film debut in The Marine 2, a direct-to-DVD movie that was released on December 29, 2009.

We look forward to his presentation as well as presenting area service awards, silent auction, raffles and door prizes. This is sure to be a fun night to honor our members and spotlight you for all you do for this community.
