Chamber Challenge Golf Scramble
It’s time to register your team for the Chamber Challenge Golf Scramble. The 2017 Chamber Challenge Golf Scramble will take place on Friday, Aug. 18, at the Bella Vista Country Club Golf Course.
This is a fun opportunity to engage with others in the community, promote your business and encourage economic development of the area through networking. In addition to golf, there are also various sponsorship packages available offering you the opportunity to promote exposure for your brand in a relaxed environment. This year, the chamber will team up with and give a portion of the proceeds to NWA Food Bank. According to Feeding America, more than 70,000 people in northwest Arkansas are struggling with food insecurity.
Donations made to the NWA Food Bank are stored, sorted and then provided to people in need at food pantries, soup kitchens, youth programs, senior centers, schools, and emergency shelters. To learn more about sponsorship opportunities, call the Chamber at 479-273-2841.
