Colerain Chamber Newsletter | March 2018 | Issue 32
Chamber President Debra Stonehill
It's almost here...our biggest event of the year: the Hometown Hero Gala! We're honoring UC Basketball Coach Mick Cronin this year, and Rocky Boiman of 700 WLW is our emcee. Please be a sponsor, donate a gift certificate, or donate some bottles of wine for the auction and games. If you haven't heard from one of our dedicated volunteers, just call me or reply to this email.

Want to earn some extra bucks? Now you can earn $50 in cash  if a new member joins (i.e., pays their first year dues) without involving Chamber staff, and identifies  you as their referral. The membership application is on our website so new members may simply join online. Easy money!

Are you looking for a low-cost way to build business awareness? Then let me know you'd like to host Corey Colerain, our traveling Cardinal, at your location! Corey Colerain will make his Facebook debut in April with fun photo contests to guess Corey's location on Traveling Tuesdays. Call or email me  if you'd like Corey Colerain to visit you!
Our Next Event: Hometown Hero Gala on Thursday, April 19
Our 2018 Hometown Hero Dinner Gala is April 19 at the Kolping Center (10235 Mill Road). It will be a "slam-dunk" good time: a VIP cocktail reception with honoree UC Coach Mick Cronin, National Coach of the Year; dinner, auction, and fun games of chance; and a live interview with Coach Cronin, conducted by emcee Rocky Boiman of 700 WLW. They both grew up in Colerain Township so we'll get to hear childhood memories as well as sports careers stories.

Tickets must be purchased in advance, with early bird discounts until April 6. Get your seats now because this promises to be a packed house!
