Visit with business owners after hours

The Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce will have its occasional Chamber After Hours networking event at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 24, at Buddha Kat Winery, 17020 Ruben Lane, near Highway 26.

The activity also includes a ribbon cutting ceremony. The event is held to give opportunities for local entrepreneurs to meet people from other businesses, while enjoying refreshments as well as door prizes.

Bring a dollar to enter a drawing, which gives prizes to the winners and saves 50 cents from each entrant to pay for gifts and food for a needy family next Christmas.

For more information on this networking event or how to connect with local business owners, call 503-668-4006.
