STRIVE Young Professionals Group seeks sponsorship for Gatsby Gala

As the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce's STRIVE: Young Professionals Group continues through its second year of inception, we are proud to announce that we will be hosting our first annual gala with the theme of The Great Gatsby.

The STRIVE: Gatsby Gala, slated for Saturday September 13, 2014 will take place at Chamber member establishment, the Iron Club, at the Sault Ste. Marie Golf Club. At this event, attendees will enjoy a world class dinner prepared and sourced from local farmers, artisans and food suppliers; in addition, live music will be provided during dinner with other musical entertainment later in the evening. This event will culminate nearly two seasons of successful events and hard work on behalf of both the Executive and STRIVE members. Considering the anticipated success of this gala, we plan to host this event annually in the future.

The STRIVE: Young Professionals Group was developed in late 2012 through the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce to respond to a gap in representation for young professionals within the community. Young professionals in Sault Ste. Marie are part of a demographic that communicate, network and do business differently than in years past. These individuals are the future leaders of this community and STRIVE intends to nurture relationships to maximize the potential of young professionals in Sault Ste. Marie. The Strive group aims to assist young professionals in reaching higher potential through community development, networking events, training opportunities, and recognizing achievements for the purposes of attraction and retention in the community.

To date, the STRIVE group has hosted and involved itself in over a dozen STRIVE, Chamber and community‐wide events, reaching out to different facets of young professionals in Sault Ste. Marie and the surrounding area. Over the past two years, STRIVE has hosted three social networking events, three developmental learning opportunities in the form of the Local Leaders series, and has shown a strong presence in community events like the Ontario Chamber of Commerce's Annual General Meeting and Convention and less formally, the 2014 Festival of Beer.

As we continue to develop our brand and program each season's activities and events to meet the needs of young professionals within our community, we ask that you consider this upcoming event as a way for you to connect with young professionals. We are confident that this event will continue to lay the groundwork for what we hope will be many years of community involvement and support of Chamber member businesses.
We thank you for your time and any consideration you may have in sponsoring the STRIVE: Young Professionals Group.
