The Young Professionals didn’t have a regularly-scheduled meeting in September, because of the preparation for the Taste of the Chamber on Thursday, September 28. The Young Professionals help in the planning of the event, contributing to its success.
One of the biggest fundraisers for the Young Professionals is the Wine of Wall at the Taste. Prior to the event, Chamber members and people in the community are asked to donate a bottle of wine worth $20 or more. These donations are wrapped and placed on the Chamber’s wine rack, which people at the Taste randomly select bottles from – for a donation of at least $20. All proceeds from the sale of the wine go to a scholarship fund for a Young Professional to be in Leadership Aurora.
