This is going to be a great month for our members. We start off the month celebrating all the working women out there with our Women At Work luncheon this Friday, May 6th. The chamber team has created an amazing lineup for this luncheon, and we’re looking forward to seeing you there. We also want to promote and acknowledge all of our local small businesses for National Small Business Week from May 1-7th. Small businesses are the heart and soul of our country and our Sarasota community. When you have the opportunity to shop locally, you are helping your neighbors keep our local economy strong.
Can you imagine a community with no small businesses? And speaking of small businesses, you will not want to miss our Annual Frank G. Berlin Sr. Small Business Awards luncheon scheduled for Friday, June 17th, at the Hyatt Regency Sarasota. We will be honoring 27 small business finalists at this luncheon and sharing the great work they do.
The Giving Challenge wrapped up last week with a record 46,000 donors and 669 local charities supported- WOW, what a generous community we live in. Wishing you and your family a wonderful month of May, and thank you for being a treasured member of the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce.
