Maryland Heights Chamber of Commerce will hold its 11th annual Holiday Gala December 12th at Hollywood Casino & Hotel. The Holiday Gala, which is open to the public, raises money for the Maryland Heights Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation. This money raised benefits area high school students for college scholarships. The Education Foundation has raised and distributed over $68,000 in the past ten years for college scholarships.
“We have always asked that our members of the Chamber as well as the community contribute by attending this festive event. Our members have provided when there are times of need and since our scholarship fund has been depleted over the years due to the number of scholarships provided; our members have come forward to help once again.”
The Chamber is very dedicated to Education within our community and maintain the tradition annually. A check for over $1000 was presented to the Education Foundation .
To help keep the event festive, the students from Pattonville Orchestra, led by Daniel Henderson will perform for the attendees.
In addition to, the Chamber held a gently used coat, scarves and mitten drive all of which will be donated to Pattonville and Parkway students in need.
