Getting Fired Up

“Energy and persistence conquer all things.” Benjamin Franklin

Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce wants your energy to work as a team to promote and improve the civic, economic, industrial, professional and cultural welfare of the Crescenta Valley. TEAM = Together Everyone Achieves More.

Do you have ideas on how to improve the Crescenta Valley? Please call, email or stop by the Crescenta Valley Chamber office. We can’t do our job to help you unless we hear from you.

And now, talking about energy, two of our members, Mary Pinola and Chris Waldheim, actually ran in the L.A. Marathon this last Sunday. Okay, maybe they walked, but at least they finished the marathon and all for such a good cause: raising money for educational programs in the Crescenta Valley! So far, they have raised over $5,000 for the CV Chamber/ Mary Pinola Educational Endowment Fund and are still receiving contributions.

You can still contribute to educational institutions and projects in the Crescenta Valley even without running in the marathon. All you need to do is RSVP now for the 2012 Smart-A-Thon on March 28 at Verdugo Hills Hospital.   Bring a team of four of your smartest friends or come alone and we will put you with the smartest team. This event is the premier fundraiser for the CV Chamber/ Mary Pinola Educational Endowment Fund, which grants funds to projects at all our local schools and educational organizations. Call the Chamber and we will sign you up for lunch and participation for only $35. You only have to be smart enough to know you are giving to a good cause!
