Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce cancels ‘Business on the Green’ fundraiser

Sponsors and golfers can support the inaugural Chilliwack Give-a-Thon next month instead

Envision ‘Business on the Green’ Golf Tournament was just added to the many local events events that have been cancelled this summer.

Organizers sent out a notice recently to let sponsors, golfers and the public know.

“Due to the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we, as your Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce, have made the very difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Business on the Green Golf Tournament.

“We understand that this tournament is one that everyone looks forward to each year and as a non-profit organization it is also one of our main fundraisers of the year. This decision was not made lightly.”

They are leading by example and supporting economic recovery plans locally so they’ve decided not to reschedule the 2020 golf tournament so that they may help “minimize the financial burden businesses and individuals” who might be asked to support them.

“We plan to host the 2021 Business on the Green Golf Tournament at the same time next year and we hope that you will join us as a sponsor then.”

Both sponsors and players have options to choose from with respect to paid invoices. One of these options will be to support the upcoming 2020 Inaugural Chilliwack Give-a-Thon, on Wednesday, June 10, 2020.

“This event will raise money for multiple non-profit organizations throughout our community in hopes to help offset some of the revenue lost from events in 2020 due to COVID-19.

“These non-profit organizations are crucial to our community and provide a variety of services that our citizens rely on. Chilliwack is a community that rallies and always has, and we are counting on everyone to help make this a tremendous success.”

The chamber will release more details shortly. Anyone with paid invoices can contact the chamber to let them know which of the four options works best, email Sarah at sarah@chilliwackchamber.com
