Chamber of Commerce Hosts Taste of the Town & Toy Drive
Prince William, VA – The Prince William Chamber of Commerce is preparing for one of its most popular events, the Cuisine de Commerce, sponsored by Internet Ad Management, Inc. Taking place at the Continental Event Center, 9705 Liberia Avenue in Manassas, 11:30 a.m. on November 6th, this “taste of the town” will feature samples from 15 area restaurants and caterers. A toy drive will also take place, with donations accepted at the event and at Burke & Herbert Bank locations throughout greater Prince William.
“We encourage everybody in the community to come out, discover new restaurant favorites and bring something for the toy drive,” said Chamber President and CEO Debbie Jones. “This event is all about our community: highlighting and supporting local businesses. With all that Prince William County, Manassas and Manassas Park have to offer, we want members and guests to see that there is plenty of reason to stay close to home when going out to eat.” Jones encourages employers to consider recognizing their staff or clients by inviting them to join you for this luncheon, where a table of ten is just $375 for members or non-members.
“Burke & Herbert Bank is proud to be the Toy Drive Sponsor of the Cuisine de Commerce. As a local community bank and the oldest bank in Virginia we believe it is important to support the communities in which we do business,” said Burke & Herbert Bank Senior Vice President Terry Cole. “We are excited about working with the Prince William Chamber to help bring holiday joy to less fortunate children in our neighborhoods and pleased to have our branches serve as locations for the collection of toy donations.”
“I’m proud that so many of our members are glad to give back to the community that supports their business,” said Bruce Moore of Internet Ad Management, Inc., the Main Event Sponsor and a member of the Chamber’s Board of Directors. This is the third year that his company has sponsored the luncheon. Over the last two years, the event has featured a food drive where members brought in close to 500 pounds of food. This year everyone is asked to bring a toy, which the Continental Event Center, in partnership with local churches, will distribute to local families in need of help this holiday season.
According to Jones, this luncheon is a great way to treat office staff, clients or friends to a special lunch. Attendees will have the chance to sample foods and treats prepared by Zandra’s Taqueria, P.F. Chang’s, Bahama Breeze, Travinia Italian Kitchen, A La Carte Catering and Event Design, The Piedmont Club, UNO Chicago Grill, Dyvine BBQ in Motion, Café Rio Mexican Grill, Cakes by Happy Eatery, Not Your Average Joe’s and several more to be announced!
