Banquet Mix & Mingle

There's no place like home, and we're celebrating that fact as we travel to the Land of Oz at the Chester County Chamber of Commerce's 66th Annual Membership Banquet and Awards Night on March 14th at the Gateway Conference Center in Richburg!


Please join us as GAF presents a Mix & Mingle "Over the Rainbow" at 5:00 p.m., complete with a 5-piece jazz band, bar, and appetizers. What an amazing opportunity to network and make new connections!


This year, our dinner buffet lines will be open at 5 p.m. so guests may attend the Mix & Mingle first, or they can eat and then enjoy an after-dinner treat. We simply ask that guests be in their seats and ready for our awards program to begin at 7:00 p.m.
