Below are some of the major events held by the Brenham/Washington County Chamber of Commerce. View details about the events, including sponsors and photo slide shows. Enjoy!!
The Chamber hosted this first annual event last October at Silver Wings Ballroom in Brenham. It will be hosted again very soon...on Thursday, October 30, 2014 from 5:30-9pm.
The Silver Wings Ballroom will once again be full of exhibitors with wonderful products and services! There will be a great raffle plus delicious food, cold drinks, music, fashion shows and more.
Over 300 ladies attended last year with their friends, moms, sisters, church group pals, neighbors and coworkers. We expect the crowd to be even bigger this year! Everyone said it was a great night!! And everyone felt good about this shopping spree, because proceeds from this event benefit the Washington County Wildflower Reseeding project.
Sponsors are currently being sought for this 2014 event!! There are several levels with many exciting benefits and opportunities for publicity and promotion. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to know more.
