About Charity Connect Events
One of the best ways to build connections between supporters and the charities that make Thunder Bay stronger is old-fashioned, hands-on, personal experience. Charity Connect events provide opportunities for charities to host groups of Chamber Members on their premises for activities that support the charity and give attendees an insider view of how the organization works. Attendees can participate in a fun activity, get to know the charity, and network with like-minded Members. These events are promoted through the Chamber’s event calendar, our weekly eNews and our Facebook events.
Charity Connect events are an aspect of the Charity Connect program. Learn more here.
