Atascadero Chamber of Commerce to host annual gala virtually April 17
Tickets now available for a ‘Speakeasy Night’
–The Atascadero Chamber of Commerce will host its annual gala and awards program virtually on Saturday, April 17, 2021, at 7 p.m. This is the chamber’s premier annual event that kicks off a year-long body of work to empower local businesses to thrive as we begin to emerge towards a post-pandemic environment. From dynamic local speakers, local entertainment, and an interactive silent auction, this will be an exciting and fast-paced event that is open to the entire community. Similar to previous years, the gala will feature awards for Citizen of the Year, Business of the Year, Non-Profit of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, and Ambassador of the Year. The chamber is accepting award nominations for the categories listed above on its website through March 17.
“Due to the uncertainty of being able to meet in person, the Gala is moving forward virtually with a ‘speakeasy’ theme” says Josh Cross, interim CEO of the Atascadero Chamber of Commerce. “We wanted a theme that felt reflective of the times in the sense that we are asking folks to safely celebrate in their own homes while participating in an event that will support the economic future of our community.”
Attendees can select from three themed ticket options ranging from $25 to $125. The ‘Moonshine’ ticket includes a raffle ticket for an item valued at $350 or more. The ‘Side Car’ ticket includes a raffle ticket, a take-out charcuterie platter, baguette, and bottle of wine. The ‘Bees Knees’ package includes a raffle ticket, take-out dinner for two, and a bottle of wine.
“We are excited to partner with some of our community’s top restaurants and purveyors to offer high-quality take-out dining experiences and know that attendees will feel good about supporting an important local industry,” says Cross. Three fun VIP experiences from Alta Colina Winery, Wild Fields Brewhouse, and Forager Spirits will begin at 5:30 p.m. on the evening of the gala and will be hosted by the owners of the businesses.
