Holiday Mixer – Sponsor and Donor Information
The Edgewater Chamber of Commerce Holiday Mixer is a fundraiser and end-of-year celebration of the investment the Chamber and its members have made in Edgewater. The event will take place on Thursday, December 7, 2017 from 6-9pm at the beautiful, historic Colvin House. Attendees will include up to 150 local business owners, residents, elected officials, and other community stakeholders who will enjoy food, drink, music, a silent auction, and all-around good company.
Since 2014, the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce has poured $1,147,960 into this community to help make it one of the best places to live and own a business in Chicago! We’re particularly proud of the partnership the Chamber has developed with our local schools over the past couple of years; we know that good schools are critically important to a thriving business district and neighborhood. In 2017 we raised close to $10,000 for local schools and other Edgewater non-profits.
The chamber is a 501c6 nonprofit organization; thirty-seven percent of our annual revenue comes from grants and contract management, and the rest, we raise through events like this one. Your contribution is crucial to the success of our 2017 Holiday Mixer, which in turn supports our capacity to fund our programming and neighborhood development initiatives, including placemaking, business attraction, grants and technical assistance for businesses, and our community farmers market. We’d love the opportunity to promote your support of our Chicago community!
Thank you for your time and consideration.
