As 2023 draws to a close, we would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for your continued support throughout the year.
The theme of our December luncheons is “Holiday Game Show Extravaganza.” It promises to be an enjoyable occasion filled with fun games, music, and exciting prizes; we hope you will be able to attend.
We will also be recognizing our sponsors at this luncheon who have played a crucial role in supporting our mission to bring valuable business educational programs to our members and the business community throughout the year.
2023 has been a year of rebuilding for many of us, and your unwavering support has made it possible for us to continue our mission. We want to celebrate the spirit of the season and show our gratitude to each of our sponsors.
Feel free to don your best Christmas attire or Elf suit to add to the festive atmosphere! Door prizes will be happily accepted and given out as prizes for some of our games.
We will be collecting toys for the Children’s Advocacy Center of SWFL and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast- Collier County, who both work with Children’s organization in SWFL and who knows the need.
