Chamber Event Showcases Nonprofit Opportunities

The Chamber of Commerce serving Lexington, Buena Vista and Rockbridge County will host its second annual Non-Profit Showcase in partnership with Devils Backbone Brewing Company and United Way of Rockbridge on Thursday, Jan. 16, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Devils Backbone.

Incorporating the showcase into the chamber’s January Business After Hours event provides all community members to meet representatives from 24 of the area’s nonprofit organizations.

“Our goal is to provide a space for our nonprofits to not only share information, but to also truly connect with those looking for ways to get more involved,” said Chamber Executive Director Tracy Lyons. This will be an event

where the nonprofit groups will be able to recruit board members, committee members and volunteers. Each is going to list time commitments and tasks assigned to the open spots they are in need of filling the most.
