Chamber Gives Back
We love to give back! Chamber Gives Back provides a way for local businesses to partner with local nonprofits to make a difference and provide a great atmosphere for business development. DollarBank sponsored Chamber Business Socials are a great way to connect while you give back to Hampton Roads.
Chamber Gives Back combines the same great Chamber Business Socials with a way to give back and learn about local nonprofits. One of the first Chamber Gives Back collaborations was Stripers Waterside and Montero Medical Missions. Throughout the evening of networking and business development, 10% of the cash bar was donated to Montero Medical Missions. During the event, Dr. Montero himself spoke to the crowd about Montero Medical Missions and the causes that his organization helps. Through networking and drink purchases alone, $200 was donated to Montero Medical Missions.
Hosted by The Fishin’ Pig, the October Chamber Business Social highlighted the Honor Foundation, a career transition program for U.S. Special Operations Forces that effectively translate their elite military service to the private sector and helps create the next generation of corporate and community leaders. This business and nonprofit collaboration paved the way for other local businesses and nonprofits to connect and help local military leaders transition into a new field.
Recently, Chamber Gives Back was also able to help the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore. Thanks to the collaboration with our host, Bryant & Stratton College, our members and invited guests were able to donate food and funds. During the event, $960 was raised and 221 pounds of food was collected.
We hope you will check out our events calendar for the next opportunity to attend a Chamber Business Social and Chamber Gives Back event!
