Cabot has enjoyed an active partnership with the Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce almost since the beginning of our exploration of the Marcellus shale. We’ve participated in many events together and have shared many a seat at many a table. So we’re proud to be the Presenting Sponsor for this year’s Denim & Diamonds event, which the Chamber will hold on the lawn of their new headquarters on Mile Road in Tunkhannock on Thursday, Sept. 23.
This is one of several large fundraisers that the Wyoming County Chamber conducts annually to help offset costs of services for members, especially small business owners. “We’re not your traditional nonprofit, so people may not understand why we run fundraisers,” Chamber president Gina Suydam explained.
Not surprisingly, the majority of those events were canceled last year, which is why the Chamber is promoting Denim & Diamonds as a celebration. “We’re celebrating our new location,” Gina related. “And, for our members, we’re celebrating coming through 2020 – celebrating their endurance and moving forward.”
Highlights of the dinner party, for which food will be provided by Constantino’s Catering and Events, will include live music by Lindsay Van Gorden and Mike Elward.
As the name implies, the dress code is essentially wide open. “It’s more formal in some ways, so people are welcome to dress up if they want to,” said Gina. “But, if you don’t feel like dressing up, you can come in denim as well. All are welcome. Come as you feel comfortable.” The invitation reminds patrons that it will be held on the lawn, so spiked heels may not be the best option.
Each Denim & Diamonds ticket will include two drink vouchers to sample offerings from Nimble Hill Winery & Brewery. There will also be a cash cocktail bar, games, raffles, and plenty of time for socializing. We always look forward to relaxing and catching up with our industry partners and all of the other Chamber members.
“Cabot has been the Presenter Sponsor for our fall event for many years,” Gina noted. “It’s important to have that presenting sponsor right up front so we know that key expenses are covered. Then we can concentrate on finding sponsors for other elements of the event.”
There are 120 seats available and, as of Monday, there were still about 30 tickets left. “We’ll take them until we are full,” Gina told us. No walk-ins will be accepted, however, so interested readers should log in today to register at www.WyCCC.com.
