Ray and Robbin Thatcher were among those attending the 10th annual Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce Fundraiser Dinner & Auction at the Silver Bay YMCA.
Volunteers and sponsors contributed to the 10th annual Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce Fundraiser Dinner & Auction.
The event was held at the Silver Bay YMCA.
“This event has become TACC’s premier fundraising event to assist the chamber in all of their efforts,” said Matthew Courtright, chamber executive director. “With the continued dedication and support of Ticonderoga area businesses, organizations and the community the chamber is able to serve, market and promote the Ticonderoga area including, Ticonderoga, Crown Point, Hague, Moriah and Putnam as well as surrounding areas.”
Courtright lauded the volunteers who make the chamber successful, thanking those who planned the annual dinner. He singled out the staff at Silver Bay, TACC board members, Ambassadors and volunteers as well as Scarlette Merfeld and Allison Kaupelis, event co-chairwoman, Sue Rathbun, Pam Nolan, Starr Pinkowski, Ann Morette, Molly Bechard, Lori Ross and Amy LaVare.
Rathbun, chamber first vice president, was recognized for starting the annual event a decade ago.
“I would like to give a special thanks to Susan Rathbun,” Courtright said. “Susan was the key person in starting the annual fundraiser for the chamber of commerce 10 years ago. Without her continued dedication and guidance to the chamber this event we are all at tonight that supports the chambers mission and goals would not be possible. Thank you Susan for everything.”
Gary Douglas, executive director of the Plattsburgh North Country Chamber of Commerce, attended. He told of the respect area groups have for the Ti chamber.
Courtright credited the annual event’s sponsors with making the evening a success.
“I would like to give a round of applause and thank you to all of the sponsors of tonight’s event,” he said. “Without them this evening truly would not be possible. Be sure to support these area businesses/organizations and all of our chamber members as they support the chamber and the community in so many ways. All we do at the chamber would not be possible without them.
“The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce would like to thank the 10th annual Fundraiser Dinner & Auction sponsors,” Courtright said. “This year was a great success and surpassed our fundraising goal.”
