The Streetsboro Area Chamber of Commerce hosted its first evening gala, "Autumn on the Lake," recently at The Fairways at Twin Lakes.
This inaugural event for the Streetsboro Chamber in 2012 was inspired by the tastes, sights and smells of autumn and focused on food samplings paired with wine.
The evening began with an opening reception that featured live musical entertainment and networking opportunities. The highlight of the program was the food prepared by Executive Chef Josh Clemons, with wine selected to complement each sampling.
The evening concluded with a silent auction.
"The Streetsboro Chamber recognizes the importance of creating new and innovative ways to bring the community together. By hosting events such as this one, the Streetsboro Chamber is determined to build a solid foundation for generating continued interest in the businesses of the city of Streetsboro," said Heidi Inzerillo, executive director of the Streetsboro Area Chamber of Commerce.
Inzerillo added, "It was the generosity and strong support of the local business community that made this inaugural event a success." Those sponsors include the city of Streetsboro as the lead event sponsor, The Fairways at Twin Lakes as the reception sponsor, Baumann's Florist and Greenhouse as the decoration sponsor, Excalibur Collision Inc. as the gift bag sponsor, Portage Community Bank as the dessert sponsor, and Walthall, Drake & Wallace LLP, which provided the seasonal party favors.
