The Greater Kirkland Chamber of Commerce is holding its 100th Cirque du Centennial Gala Ball and Auction at the Marriott Hotel, Redmond on March 30th. This event is not just the the most important networking event of the year but may be of the century! This event is for the Kirkland community at large, for the Seattle and the Eastside business community, as well as the Kirkland Chamber’s membership.
The Greater Kirkland Chamber of Commerce is a continuing success story. Under the leadership of Executive Director, Samantha St. John, she and her staff have more than doubled its membership. Her philosophy has been to put on the second highest number of events of all the state’s chambers with at least one event per week, and, more often than not, multiple events in the same week. Her philosophy is to help build a strong community where people do business with those they know, like, and trust, build friendships in their many networking events, and support many of our local nonprofits.
Her passion does not stop there. She is a vocal member of the East King County Chamber of Commerce Coalition that supports the local business community and represents the membership within our exponentially growing business community throughout the Eastside in such important issues as transportation, housing and education. Samantha regularly travels to Olympia to represent issues affecting her business members, both large and small, who need help. Samantha, her staff and board, regularly meet with all our local legislators at both city and state level.
The Greater Kirkland Chamber of Commerce has one of the most committed and active boards. The Chamber’s events have a reputation for being both super fun and on the more serious side allows members to connect with other nonprofits locally. None of the events would be possible without the assistance of sponsors, fundraisers, partners and volunteers who all come together to make the events the best place to have fun on the Eastside.
If you would like to meet leaders of both the business community and the Eastside leadership, are thinking of joining the Chamber or would like to attend the Party of the Year, there is no better way than to attend the Greater Kirkland Chamber’s Cirque du Centennial Gala Ball on March 30th, 2019 at The Marriott Hotel, Redmond. You do not need to be a member of the Chamber to attend the event. Single and partner tickets are available. You may even consider purchasing a table for your own business. We do though advise you, the tickets sell out fast.
