Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce holding first benefit dinner

The Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce is holding its first annual benefit dinner on October 5th to support its efforts to provide resources, advocacy and networking opportunities for businesses operating on the Hill. The Chamber is faced with becoming self-sustaining as a 3-year grant from the city has come to an end in 2009.

The event will be held at Poppy on Broadway and will recognize the efforts of businesses and organization across the Hill. Also, Poppy’s owner Jerry Traunfeld and Poppy’s wine steward will give talks about the business and affordable wine combinations.

Plates are $75 per person, including dinner and wine. Tickets can be purchased online here. For more information, email the CHCC at

While not every business on the Hill is a member of the CHCC, nearly 200 are — including CHS. You can check out the 2009 roster in the attached PDF.

One thought on “Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce holding first benefit dinner

  1. So far, today, can’t seem to locate the Capitol Hill Chamber on the list of groups working to defeat Ref. 71 if it hits the ballot … seems strange, since hundreds of groups are aboard… it is Seattle and CHCC is located mid venerable LGBT turf and the director, Jack, is openly ravingly queer (wrote about coming our in “MO magazine).

    ??? wonder what that lack of early endorsement is all about???

    Reporter Justin, what is the story?
