Thank You to Our Annual Sandy Spring Bank Golf Classic Sponsors
Each May, over 100 decision makers and business professionals enjoy a day away from the office by participating in our Annual Sandy Spring Bank Golf Classic. This day of networking and competitive fun is a much anticipated event each year.
In place of donating part of the proceeds to a non profit this year, the Chamber will be purchasing gifts cards and other items from local businesses to use in our typically donated raffle baskets. We want to do what we can do to support our community as many businesses are still struggling due to the COVID 19 crisis.
Thank you to our Sponsors who made this event possible!

April is Stress Awareness Month! Take a look at our newest guest blog about Stress and Eating Mindfully written by Kay Loughrey, Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist and Founder of Sweet Life Wellness.

When you've had a stressful day, one way to slow down and feel less stressed is to enjoy eating mindfully. In a fast-paced world, how can we pay attention to the process of eating and enjoy eating mindfully? After all, eating is one of life’s simple pleasures. Instead, it often seems quicker to eat while multi-tasking so we can get on to “more important things.” Then, we tend to overeat and gain weight. Why should we take the time to enjoy eating mindfully? Read more.
