Each September, hundreds of people gather for one evening to support the Chamber and reconnect with fellow Chamber members as summer vacation nears its 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.

Join your fellow Chamber Members for a Sunset Soiree featuring food donated by local restaurants, live music and cocktails! Wander through the lush gardens of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia's Visitor's Center and mingle on the patio while enjoying delicious food and sipping wine. There's no speaker or formal program which allows plenty of time for mingling and networking. Bring friends, colleagues or even spouses for a laid-back, but fun evening!
Parking is available at the State Botanical Garden, so please follow the signs to the Visitor's Center. The dress-code for this event is "business casual", so no suit and tie required!
As part of the 2017 "Fostering a Spirit of Service" initiative we will be hosting a book drive for Books for Keeps and collecting items for the Chamber's "Little Free Pantry".
Additionally, we will award the 2017 "Small Business of the Year"!
