Chamber's Christmas Luncheon - 2015

Nanaimo’s Largest Networking Luncheon!
Everyone is Welcome!

 If it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around your place, just imagine what it looks like at the Chamber of Commerce where they’re planning lunch for 400 plus on Wednesday, December 9.

“We’re working with the Vancouver Island Conference Centre and our designers to create a warm Christmas atmosphere inside the ballroom. We have promises that the chef is pulling out all the stops for an old-fashioned Christmas menu. There are over $30,000 worth of auction items so you could virtually do all your Christmas shopping right there,” reported Kim Smythe, CEO of the Chamber. “From vacations in Ucluelet and Victoria,  golf packages, tons of mixed merchandise and so much more – there’s more variety here than you’ll see in any store.”

People begin to gather around 11 am and network to the background holiday tunes of the Vancouver Island Symphony Choir and the Nanaimo Youth Choir.  As the buffet line opens up, the Wellington Jazz Band takes the stage. The buffet selection – built around a delicious turkey dinner -- will be a headliner, but if past Christmas feasts are any example, the dessert buffet will be a close runner up.

Chamber luncheons usually feature news and updates from the organization and a keynote speaker but Christmas gives everyone a holiday from that format. Instead, it’s networking around the lunch table, shopping the silent auction tables, a brief word from the luncheon sponsor Coastal Community Credit Union.

Never an event to be missed, because it’s not really Christmas until you’ve had lunch with 400 close, personal friends at the Conference Centre with your Chamber of Commerce. Everyone is welcome, whether you’re a Chamber member or not.

Tickets available at the Chamber 250-756-1191 ext. 2 or by emailing renee@nanaimochamber.bc.ca
