Well, 2017 is off to a running start with all kinds of exciting things happening!
We had a great turnout at breakfast Tuesday morning at Tilted Kilt with a number of guests and a few of our newest members. Rich Alcorn from Primerica
gave a very informative presentation of retirement investment ideas. The Networking was good as was the tasty breakfast put out by Hillary Dempsey, the GM at Tilted Kilt
Hillary shared news about an event that Tilted Kilt
and another Chamber member, GO AZ Motorcycles Peoria
are having with all proceeds going to the YMCA of Peoria Youth Sports Programs
. The event is Saturday January, 28th
from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm and called GO AZ Motorcycles Peoria Charity Fashion Event featuring Prodigal Son Clothing. Mark your calendars to attend and watch next week’s newsletter for all the details including a link to register.
Speaking of marking your calendar, here are two biggies – March 8th we are doing a joint Speed Networking Event with the Phoenix Metro Chamber.
It’s at Arrowhead Country Club from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. We are planning for 100 people so this will be an excellent opportunity for our Peoria Chamber members to make new contacts with a whole different group of business owners from the Phoenix Metro Chamber. Cost is $20.00 which includes lunch. We will be promoting it more as the date approaches.
Now for the BIG NEWS!! Our $10 Million Shootout Golf Classic is moving to Friday, May 12th.
It will again be at Trilogy Golf Club in Vistancia
. The basic format will be the same with one exciting twist – whichever golfer in the Shootout is closest to the pin gets $1000 cash right on the spot! Someone will for sure win big! We need several people to be subcommittee heads – Publicity, Awards, Hole Sponsors, Corporate Sponsors, Raffle Prizes and a Volunteer Coordinator. If you would like to be a part of this year’s exciting event, please call or email me with which committee you’d like to lead or work on.
