Attend the Event! Four attendee package choices available; some packages include gift cards to member restaurant of your choice and can be picked up at Chamber office day of event. All packages include virtual event link which will be sent to registered attendees morning of January 22 for optimal viewing—allowing everything from a company work lunch event to happy hour or small group evening gathering. Our goal for the four attendee packages available is to allow people to gather in small ways. For example:
Company Bash Package-- A business with employees working in the office offering a socially distant lunch or happy hour event. Use the gift cards included with this attendee package as staff appreciation give away items or to purchase food for the event.
House Party Package--Small gatherings of people in your “pod” who celebrate at someone’s home.
Zoom & Chill Package--Make a date to connect with other groups via zoom and participate in the event together. Or, enjoy at home with your family.
Participant Link Package--A great way to support the chamber and watch at your own leisure.
Thank You Company Bash Participants
