    Greetings to all-

    I hope you enjoyed the long Labor Day weekend. I experience a bit of sadness every time Summer comes to an end. The good news is that it always comes back!

    On behalf of BGLCC, I am proud to share that the Chamber’s endeavors at BG Days were successful. We appreciate all of you who came out to visit, purchase spirits and/or volunteer at the Beer/Wine Tent. We are grateful for our Business Fair vendors, who participated in this annual community event and helped us in reaching our fundraising goal.

    This week is ‘Chamber of Commerce Week’. There is a lot to showcase in our community. BGLCC’s vision is to create added value to local business and provide a climate that attracts growth, expansion and stability. BGLCC collaborates with both of our Villages, as well as elected officials, who have a strong business presence and desire for a welcoming and vibrant place to live, work and play. I’d like to thank the Village of Lincolnshire, Mayor Brandt, Tonya Zozulya, the Village Trustees and Staff for presenting a proclamation on 9/9/19 to the BGLCC and for recognizing the importance of our role in building and sustaining a solid business community. I look forward to the Buffalo Grove Village Meeting on 9/16/19 where BGLCC will again be recognized and presented with a proclamation by President Sussman.

    Please take time to review upcoming events and opportunities to attend, learn and network. In addition, Save the date for BGLCC’s second annual Casino Night on 12/6/19 @ Blackdog Speed Shop in Lincolnshire.

    I look forward to working with all of you and building strong and lasting relationships. Be well.

    Best Regards,

    Suzi Schoenhoft – BGLCC Executive Director

    Calling All Bears Fans…

    Let’s Make Some $$$

    Come join the Chamber and be a part of the NFL’s 100-year excitement celebration!  

    The Chamber has partnered with Aramark at Soldier Field, as part of their Non-Profit Fundraising Program to help earn money for the Chamber! This is a great bonding experience and opportunity to get to know other Chamber members.

    Last week we worked the "season opener against the Packers" inside the United Club's enclosed concession stands.  We had a great time pouring beer, selling sodas, hamburgers, chicken tenders and pretzels.  The Chamber gets a percentage of the sales and the group even earned some personal tips!

    Sounds like fun?  We encourage you to ask other family members, friends or co-workers to participate as well. Sign-up to work 1, 2 or as many of the games as you like.  You will need to sign up to attend a 2-hour training/orientation session at Soldier Field prior to working and become Basset Certified online for free to be able to serve alcohol.  The Basset Certification is good for 3 years.
