Membership Harvest Celebration is BACK

 Membership Harvest Celebration is back!!

The Geneva Area Chamber of Commerce will hold its most anticipated event of 2021, appropriately on Thursday, October 21 from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM. The Membership Harvest Celebration, making its comeback after its cancellation in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will be held at Bottomless Brewing located at 3543 East Lake Road in Geneva.

The Chamber is excited to share that similar to past Celebrations, this year’s event will include farm-to-table fare as well as Finger Lakes craft beverages, a Harvest Auction and a variety of items and gift baskets to purchase or win through the popular Member Swag Raffle. All new this year will feature beer tasting from Bottomless Brewing and catering by Beef & Brew. Recently announced was the addition of live entertainment by regional Singer, Songwriter, Bass Player and Guitarist, Frankie Wheeler.

“We are so excited to bring this event back,” stated Miranda Odell, President & Executive Director for the Chamber, “With the amazing growth that has taken place within the food and craft beer industry over the last several years, a farm-to-table, harvest themed event continues to be the perfect opportunity to showcase the Finger Lakes Region as a whole as we invite our broad membership base to celebrate with us.  We’re also thrilled to be taking this event to the next level with live music, a silent auction and a large, breathtaking venue with stunning views.”

The Geneva Area Chamber of Commerce is a private, membership-based organization that specializes in Public Relations and exposure for its customers through promotional programs and custom opportunities. The Geneva Chamber is also one of the most regional Chambers in the area, with a membership that expands through many counties and communities and covers a variety of industries.

As one of the three major annual events coordinated by the Chamber, the Membership Harvest Celebration is one of the primary fundraisers that provides proceeds to sustain and build upon the Chamber’s programs and services offered to member businesses.

All three major annual events are partially funded by the Chamber’s Annual Partners. In 2021, those annual partners include Finger Lakes Partners Insurance, Bella’s Sicilian Ristorante, and Lyons National Bank. Along with their Annual Partners, the Chamber is pleased to announce that the 2021 Presenting Sponsor for Membership Harvest Celebration is Lyons National Bank.

“This event would not be possible without the support of our annual partners and sponsors,” says Odell, “With their support, our team has been able to successfully plan one of our largest events of the year. We can’t thank all of them enough for their continued support and participation of our annual events and programs.”
