Spearfish Chamber Board Chair Eric Skavang said, “On behalf of the Spearfish Area Chamber of Commerce board of directors, I’d like to thank everyone that took part in our annual fundraiser. The Chamber is a non-profit that relies on support from this fundraiser in order to continue our mission of providing advocacy, leadership, and resources for the business community. Thank you again for your support of the Spearfish Area Chamber of Commerce and congratulations to this year’s winners!”
The Spearfish Chamber is a non-profit 501(c)6 organization. The money goes to support the many chamber projects and programs that do not create revenue on their own. These include such things as promoting shopping local, being the information portal for the community, welcoming new residents and businesses, encouraging our youth through participation in the schools, lifting up our young professionals, growing leaders throughout our community, as well as continuing to serve as a voice for business.
Revenues that currently support the Chamber are raised through membership investments, marketing options, event revenue, and this fundraiser. The raffle raised nearly $12,000 for the chamber.
The Chamber Board and Staff want to thank everyone who supported the Chamber during this fundraising campaign.
