Each September, hundreds of people gather for one evening to support the Chamber and reconnect with fellow Chamber members as summer vacation comes to an end. As one of the Chamber of Commerce’s two largest fundraisers, Mid-Year is a great opportunity to give back while having a great time. With an annual turnout of up to 350 attendees, our guests enjoy making connections to build their business and serve their community.
This year, guests will retreat to a lush enclave right here in Athens, at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia. This is a casual event with no assigned tables, speeches, or awards. The entire night is all about mixing and mingling with fellow Chamber members, with plenty of time to enjoy delicious food and drinks donated by local restaurants.
As part of this year’s “Fostering a Spirit of Service” theme we will be collecting new or gently used books to donate to Books for Keeps!
