Several nonprofits and for-profit Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce members helped raise over $35,000 with the inaugural Do Good Delray event series in October.
With 14 events, the series was established to increase collaboration between the chamber’s profit and nonprofit members.
The chamber, which comprises nearly 800 businesses and professional firms, has served as the hub of business for Delray Beach for over nine decades.
“Do Good Delray 2021 exceeded our expectations,” chamber member services director Lynn Van Lenten said in a statement.
“We had 14 incredible partnerships that resulted in new relationships and new funds raised. We experienced new signature events that we know will grow into annual fundraisers, plus we met so many new friends eager to get involved. We truly succeeded in our mission to ‘Do Good Delray’ and we anticipate this venture to double next year.”
The event series’ participating partners included Chick-fil-A, Achievement Centers for Children and Families, Vision Marketing, WiseTribe, Rose Marcom, The Milagro Center, Edward Jones, The HERD Foundation, Casa Mannabliss, Wayside House, Kaniuk Law Office, EJS Project, Amber Gitter, The Cocoplum Nature School, Delray Beach Open, Be Like Brit, SRS Consulting, Habitat for Humanity, Eat Better Live Better, The Amy and Noreen Team, Lang Realty and CROS Ministries, MasterWing Creative and P.L.A.Y.
