Chamber’s Golf Classic features mini-business expo

MILLEDGEVILLE —  

The Milledgeville-Baldwin County Chamber of Commerce and the Milledgeville Country Club are once again hosting the 18th annual Golf Classic tournament while introducing Super Business After Hours featuring a mini business expo with vendors from the surrounding area to serve as the Chamber’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

“It’s going to be a great fun day of connecting,” Chamber Investor Relations Director Ashley Marcott said. “Proceeds from the fundraiser will support programs, events and initiatives the Chamber advocates for everyday.”

Slated Monday, April 15, teams consisting of area golf enthusiasts will tee off at noon with a shotgun start followed by lunch catered by the Goodie Gallery.

The Super Business After Hours will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. at which more than 20 vendors will be on site at the mini-expo while the Life Enrichment Center’s Black & White Gallery will be showcased and the Eric Dodd Band provides live entertainment. Dinner, cocktails and awards will also be provided. Entry to the evening’s activities cost $10 per person. A limited number of spots are still available for vendors interested in participating in the mini-expo. The deadline to register is Friday, April 5.

“Milledgeville hasn’t had a business expo in years. This is a great opportunity for businesses to take advantage of running their promotions and roll out things within their company to the community. There are a lot of new businesses and new people to meet and get to know,” Marcott said. “To me, this is one of those things that shows the community that Milledgeville is doing good. Even though we’ve lost industry and Georgia Power is closing, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. There are businesses here that need to be shown off so we can promote shopping locally to keep money here.”
