The Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce will raise funds at its annual meeting and holiday luncheon to bring back its 501c3 enterprise, known as the Success Foundation.
The Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit business organization that has served the communities of Burien, Des Moines, Normandy Park, SeaTac and Tukwila since 1988.
“Success means a lot of different things to different people,” Seattle Southside Chamber President/CEO Andrea H. Reay said in a media release. “For the chamber, and our new charitable enterprise, it means that the people that live, work and enjoy the businesses, communities and amenities in Southwest King County are supported, encouraged and invited to create and define their own success stories. Our community should be recognized as the place where businesses, residents and community partners are able to live out their best lives. With poverty rates in our community exceeding the state average, we know we have our work cut out for us as we focus on raising the tide for all in our region. We also know that we can’t do this work alone, and we need your help.”
The community is invited to attend the chamber’s annual and holiday luncheon on Friday, Dec. 8, at Rainier Golf and Country Club, 11133 Des Moines Memorial Drive in Seattle. A silent auction will start at 11 a.m. All proceeds raised at the luncheon will go towards helping the chamber bring back the much-needed foundation. Lunch will be served at noon and the event will conclude by 1 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to arrive ready to shop for gifts and wine, support the chamber and be part of building a bright future for all in the community. Additional prizes, and festivities celebrating the chamber board, leadership and future of the organization will also be featured at this event.
Tickets for members cost $25 before Dec. 2 and $35 after. The cost for nonmembers is $50.
