A Successful Weekend for All Charities 

We had a wonderful time participating in All Charities Weekend.  Chamber members represented our organization and their companies while selling raffle tickets for All Charities and covering our Chamber table.  Attendees asked lots of questions about our businesses and took marketing materials with them.  Chamber members who donated and participated in this event were exposed to over 800 Ocean Reef Club members in two days wich was a great return on their $100 investment.  The Chamber donated two Yeti coolers filled with premium rums and vodkas.  They were very popular items with winning bids of $3,220 and $2,528.    Other Chamber members also donated items and services to All Charities on their own or in addition to their donations through the Chamber.  We thank you for making our participation in this event possible, and we hope you will all take advantage of this opportunity next year. Take a look at the photographs below to see some of the highlights.
