Holiday Networking Mixer & Toy Drive for HOPE
Tis the season to celebrate the yule season! Join us at the Waybury Inn in East Middlebury for a festive night of cheer. We will be sponsoring our annual toy drive to support the HOPE Holiday Shop, and, as always, casual conversation in small breakout groups, door prizes, and our Pot o’ Gold drawing. Have you heard that we are doing our Pot of Gold drawings differently? Everyone that attends has the opportunity to win anything from $50 to $100 in Middlebury Bucks! Ugly sweaters and other festive attire encouraged (though not required).
Toy Drive for the HOPE Holiday Shop
Every December, HOPE runs a free Holiday Shop, where low-income parents can select toys, games, and books for their children. If not for this program, many local children would receive few, if any, gifts at the holidays.
For many years, the Chamber has collected toys from our members at our December mixer. And the tradition continues!
You can participate in the Chamber’s toy drive by bringing one unwrapped gift to the mixer. If you are unable to attend the mixer, but wish to donate, you can purchase toys through HOPE’s online toy store. After you complete your purchase, email Amy Djordjevic so we can announce at the mixer how many toys and gifts the Chamber collected for local children.
*You must register in advance to attend. We will be limiting attendance to keep social distancing possible, so register early!
