Women in Business Subcommittees
WIB Committee Co-chairs:
A two-year term overseeing all subcommittees of the Women in Business group. Co-chairs organize and run monthly meetings.
This event is held each spring and is our major fundraiser for our scholarships. Local restaurants provide samples of their specialties to enjoy with wine from area wineries. Raffle donations provide a plethora of goodies to be awarded to ticket winners. Funds raised from this event, which have averaged $20,000 in recent years, go to local women who would like to further their education but do not have the funds to do so. This committee is divided into the following subcommittees: Restaurants, Facilities, Marketing, Raffles, and Development.
Restaurant Subcommittee: This subcommitted locates food and drink establishments to participate in the event and works with them to both get publicity and to publicize the event.
Development Subcommittee: This subcommittee solicits sponsors from Chamber members and other community supporters to raise significant funds for scholarships.
Social Media Subcommittee: This subcommittee develops and shares content about the Gourmet Getaway on all social media platforms at the Chamber and in the community.
Marketing Subcommittee: This subcommittee plans, designs and produces ads, posters, signage and other collateral materials, as well as soliciting free media coverage through in-kind ads and public relations.
Facilities Subcommittee: This committee plans and manages the event site, arranging for all vendors and other committees to fulfill their jobs.
Raffles and Silent Auction Subcommittee: This subcommittee solicits, creates packages and raffles of dozens of baskets and other items to add excitement and generate significant funds for women in need.
Each year at the Annual Awards Dinner, the WIB Committee awards scholarships to women continuing their education. Committee members solicit and receive applications for the Women in Business Scholarships, interview candidates, and decide on scholarship recipients.
