Celebrating Charitable Giving
The Christmas Giving Breakfast is an annual event held in early December. This event is a celebration of the holiday season and a way for Chamber members to give back to our community. Volunteers gather over 100 donations from members and partner organizations which are raffled off the morning of the event generating thousands of dollars to gift.
