This October, we will host our yearly Education Update Luncheon with Dr. Ann McGee from Seminole State College, Dr. Dan Holsenbeck from UCF, and Dr. Walt Griffin from Seminole County Public Schools. The event is sure to be great with lunch catered by Dominic’s Restaurant. Luncheons will continue to be jam packed as we end the year with our 5th Annual Chamber Gives Back Non-profit Appreciation Luncheon in November, and our Business Awards and Chamber Expo Luncheon in December. We invite all non-profits in the Central Florida area to come out and set up a free promotional table in November. Last year, we had over 50 non-profits represented. This year will most likely top that as we welcome John Rivers, chef and owner of 4 Rivers Smokehouse as both our speaker and caterer. Please contact Melissa Lee if your non-profit would like to have a space at this event.
