This Saturday, the CV Chamber is helping Albertsons host its first Customer Appreciation Day. We at the Chamber are so pleased to welcome the new, spiffed up Albertsons to the neighborhood. They’re located in the prior Haggen’s spot at 6240 Foothill Blvd., Tujunga.
The day promises to be full of fun and freebies. A section of the parking lot will be cordoned off for the festivities. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. check out the lineup of classic cars sponsored by the Early Rodders Car Club. Barbecues will be fired up all day, offering free hot dogs and other mouthwatering items for sale. Every 30 minutes they’ll announce either a cake walk or – wait for it – a chicken walk! Winners will go home with a beautiful cake from the in-store bakery or an eight-piece chicken dinner.
Neighboring businesses like the Do It Yourself Center, Wells Fargo and Verizon will be on hand with promos of their own. There will be other raffles and giveaways and an outdoor deejay to keep the party going. Speaking of parties, Albertsons will have party ideas and samples available throughout the day.
So come by for a day of fun, food, cars and music – Saturday, May 14 from 10 a.m. on at Albertsons, 6240 Foothill.
The next major event on the Chamber’s calendar is the annual scholarship golf tournament coming up Friday, June 24 at Scholl Canyon Golf Course. Proceeds from this event will benefit students of the Crescenta Valley as well as The Desi Geestman Foundation. The Geestman Foundation provides financial and emotional support to children with cancer and their families. If you or your business would like to sponsor this event we have opportunities ranging from major sponsorship of $3,000 to tee sponsorship of $150. We also appreciate prize donations for our raffle drawing. Deadline for full advertising benefits is May 27. Call (818) 248-4957 or visit our website for more info.
If you’re a golfer, tournament registration is now open. Your $125 entry fee gets you 18 holes, two-person cart, bucket of range balls, goodie bag, continental breakfast, refreshments on the course and Zeke’s famous steak and salmon lunch. Register at www.crescentavalleychamber.org/golf.
Finally, the Chamber always has our monthly mixers or, as I like to call them, the “meet-your-next-client parties.” I personally make new friends over hors d’oeuvres and sips at the mixers and often find myself calling these people the next week to try out their services. Last Wednesday’s mixer at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Crest Real Estate was a big success. Next month, we’ll have our mixer at Crescenta-Cañada Pet Hospital on Wednesday, June 15 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. You don’t have to be a Chamber member to come – all are welcome – however only Chamber members are eligible to win the big jackpot which (as of this writing) is now up to $525!
