ANNUAL AWARDS BANQUET & SILENT AUCTION POSTPONED
Regrettably , we are forced to postpone our annual meeting scheduled for April 30th. Because our calendar is so uncertain right now, we may not know the new date, but we can say that we will definitely reschedule as soon as pandemic restrictions are lifted . Sponsorships and reservations that have already been placed, will be honored. Thank you for supporting us as we support you in these strange and unfortunate circumstances.
For those of you who are interested in getting away as soon as we are able to travel again, we will still give away a $2,000 travel voucher at the Annual Banquet. In the event that travel restrictions are not lifted in the destination of your choice, the travel voucher will be converted into a Visa gift card in the same amount. Together we will #SurviveandThriveMustang.

SUPPLY REQUESTS
The COVID-19 pandemic is stressing supplies for our local health care providers across the region. In an effort to help overcome national shortages, we are asking all industries with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including gowns, gloves, masks (N95 and others) to donate those for use in hospital and clinic settings.

Currently closed health care services such as dentists, orthodontists, eye care and many others who may have stock on their shelves could greatly benefit our community’s preparedness.  If you are interested in donating these supplies, please email director@mustangchamber.com .
#SURVIVEANDTHRIVEMUSTANG
Mustang Chamber Supports Your Business!
We have created two social media Groups on Facebook to network and support our local restaurants and retailers. Restaurants and Retailers in Mustang or Chamber Members who are not in Mustang, can post and let people know how they are handling their business and any special incentives, specials, menus, and more for customers. Please share with your friends!
AND...Here's a game we can all play while supporting local businesses at the same time.
