The Asset Preservation $10 Million Shootout Golf Classic just keeps
getting better! 

Liberty Buick in Peoria (8737 W. Bell Rd.)  has joined us offering a beautiful new Buick for a hole-in-one on the par 3, 12th hole!

That gives us 10 people who will get to shoot for $1 million each with everyone getting a chance at the 3-putt $30,000 cash putting contest along with great raffle prizes, silent auction prizes and the on-course games. How can you not have fun with all that going on??

So, take Friday May 12th off, and come out to Trilogy Golf Club in Vistancia for a great day of fun and excitement.  Registration begins at 11:00am with a shotgun start at 12:30 and a Buffet Dinner immediately following the Shootout.

If you are looking for a way to get recognition for your business we’re still needing raffle prizes and items for the golfer’s swag bags.  Drop them off at the Chamber office at 8385 W. Mariners Way, Suite 3.

The Peoria Chamber of Commerce is excited to host Secretary of State of Arizona Michele Reagan at their May luncheon on Wednesday, May 10th at Arizona Broadway Theatre from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm.  

Secretary Reagan will discuss her 2017 legislative agenda, her efforts to modernize our business services division and will be reflecting on the 2016 election cycle.
We are pleased to announce that City of Peoria Mayor Cathy Carlat will join us for the luncheon and will present a check to the Peoria Sunset Lions Club for $2000. These funds were raised from the Mayor’s State of the City address to support the organization.  
This will be an interesting and informative luncheon so make your reservations early.  Visit http: www.peoriachamber.com.
Join us for the Chamber Mixer on April 27th at the Moon Saloon.  It’s from 5:00pm to 7:00pm with food and drink specials.  Bring a raffle prize and you can have a couple minutes to speak to the crowd.
I took advantage of one of our member coupons from our website the other day.  I printed the coupon for $15 off a full synthetic oil change at Express Oil Change at 13928 N. 83rd Ave.  If your business has specials or discounts you offer to Chamber members, make sure you post them on the e-coupons page on the Chamber website.  Click on the “Member’s” tab and then e-coupons on the drop-down box, you will see directions on how to upload your special.
