2ND ANNUAL GALA
"COWBOY HATS & DIAMONDS
WESTERN DANCE & CASINO NIGHT''

September 29, 2017 (Friday) 5 pm -10:30 pm
Greetings! Here you can find more information about our upcoming Gala! You can support your chamber by attending ... Sponsoring a gaming table with your name or business name on it (see Sponsor Attachment) ... or donating an item for the Silent Auction. We have Event Sponsors in place, HEB, lntertek and the City of Leon Valley Call Bill 210 364-2719, Gail 210 256-2234 or Shirley 210- 279-9479 for tickets. Syl Stein has sent you a form to fill out for donations for the auction. Tickets are $30 per person (for dinner, entertainment, dancing, and fun) or $45 per person for all of the prior plus getting into the Casino games !! ) If playing games, a special wristband will be given out upon arrival, as well as a ticket for cash in chips. If you don't want to play, that's fine also, there is still lots to see and take advantage of while visiting with friends, old and new.

Some information which may help you decide on which category you wish to sponsor, and why we are raising funds now:
  • Established in 1981 as business association, later incorporated as a Chamber. Have been in business and supporting Leon Valley area businesses and environment since that date! After over 30 years, we moved into office space at 6233 Evers Road, Suite 2, in one of the historic buildings of Leon Valley, with the help of a start up grant from the Economic Development Corporation.
  • Raise funds for our educational programs, including our future Entrepreneur Program, in which we provide a start up business temporary space in our chamber office at nominal fee, to help them get started, and to grow a new area business. They will have one on one mentoring by members of our board and chamber to guide them, advise them, and benefit them from our collective years of experience in business.
  • Provide quarterly new member orientation which will incur certain expenses, such as materials, a large flat screen TV to further educate members (new and old) with navigation of our website, as well as business and related seminars and webinars that would benefit them tremendously.
  • Promote awareness of our chamber to other businesses in this area to network and help each other become successful, raising the economic level in this area to have a healthier business environment.
We hold a weekly breakfast, monthly luncheons, mixers and events to provide networking for business owners. We are also known for our excellent and informed speakers and our lively meetings. We are a nonprofit organization, separate from the City of Leon Valley; however, we work with them to bring awareness to needs of the business community and always try to help whenever we are asked to assist. We look forward to future plans for the chamber and respectfully request your help in supporting our fundraisers to meet our goals. Attached is a page of sponsorship choices. We hope you will be able to help in your companies or personal areas of interest.

Sincerely,
