The Chamber and the City of Sonoma are teaming up to host Santa for a special visit on Friday, December 6. Join us at City Hall at 5 p.m. for hot chocolate and some special entertainment. Santa arrives on the antique fire engine at 5:30 p.m. to greet the kids, and afterward families can head over to the Sebastiani Theatre for a special showing of "Frozen".
One of the best ways to "Think Local First" this holiday season is to support those in need. This year is the first year that Sonoma’s nonprofits will be coordinating with Sonoma Valley F.I.S.H. to ensure that the neediest in the community will experience the joys of the season through a holiday giving program to families and those with no family. For details on the Adopt A Family Program visit fishadoptafamily.org. To learn more, contact Cathy Gorham at Rabobank at 933-3090.
Each year at the Chamber's "Women in Business" breakfast forum, we tap into our talented pool of local leaders to share their stories. This year's featured speakers are Maureen Cottingham, Executive Director of the Sonoma Valley Vintners & Growers Association; Sharon Cohn, Breathless Sparkling Wines and LifeVantage Corporation; and Claudia Mendoza, a seasoned multicultural communications professional and current Board President for La Luz Center.
Always an upbeat and inspiring event, this year's forum is set for Friday, November 15 from 7:30 - 9 a.m. at the Sonoma Golf Club. Tickets are $45 for Chamber members and $60 general. Register online here or call the Chamber at 996-1033.
