Siuslaw Outreach Services Hosts Business After Hours!

July 20, 2017 @ 5:15 PM - 7:00 PM


The Florence Area Chamber of Commerce invites the public to their Business After Hours event on July 20 at Siuslaw Outreach Services (SOS), 1576 12th St., from 5:15 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

During the event, the SOS board will introduce their new executive director, Bob Teter, and celebrate the successful completion of their recent Rainbow Fund matching campaign with special check presentations. Marianne Brisbane will cater the event and beverages will be available.

“We are so excited about hosting the Chamber’s Business After Hours and hope the public will join us for this big event,” says Teter. “This spring we were approached by an anonymous community member who wasconcerned about homeless youth. During that conversation a campaign was born. We called the campaign the ‘Over The Rainbow Fund,’ and have been able to create hope and opportunity for youth who are homeless or at immediate risk of homelessness,” explains Teter. “The project was designed to raise funds to get kids into homes, get them help with their education and dental needs, and provide access to cultural enrichment programs.

“We have a special donation being made to SOS and want the public to witness it. The donor said that if we could raise $5000 by the end of June, she would match that. We raised more than $10,000. That $5,000 matching check will be presented at the Chamber’s After Hours event. In addition, the Florence Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will also present SOS with a check from their quarterly collections.”

The Chamber’s executive director, Bettina Hannigan, says the Chamber’s Business After Hours social events offer members and the public valuable networking opportunities, and are a great way to mingle with business and government leaders, and learn more about the hosting organization and advantages of Chamber membership.

“Every one of our After Hours events is beneficial to businesses and the public in some way,” says Hannigan, “and this one has the extra benefit of celebrating success and compassionate contributions that demonstrate what an awesome community we live in. I invite everyone, Chamber member or not, to come for this event.”
