One of the nation’s most visible entrepreneurs, Daymond John, will be the featured presenter Nov. 25 at the annual dinner of the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce.

The appearance by John, founder and chief executive of FUBU, a clothing company that has reached $4 billion in retail sales, was announced Thursday. John is a regular panelist on “Shark Tank,” an ABC business reality show.

The event, the chamber’s 127th annual dinner for members, will be held on its traditional Tuesday before Thanksgiving. This year’s theme will be “For KC, By KC.” John’s company’s name stands for “For Us By Us.”
