Membership and Fundraising Drive

About the organization…

The Bishop Chamber of Commerce is a community-based, non-profit organization that supports local businesses through education, networking and referrals.  The chamber hosts, co-hosts and provides support for many community events. And, they operate the Bishop information center with friendly, professional hosts that help thousands of visitors and local residents each year.  Recently, the Bishop Chamber was instrumental in acquiring and distributing PPE to all Bishop businesses.  We also facilitated two COVID-19 relief grants that distributed more than $53,000 to 42 local businesses.  Unfortunately, the pandemic has had a negative impact on the chamber’s financial situation; Blake Jones Trout Derby saw $9K less revenue this year, Golf Fun Day fundraiser was cancelled and souvenir sales are way down.

Thanks to the generous owners of Grocery Outlet, the Bishop Chamber is hosting an online Membership and Donation Drive in attempt to raise funds so the organization can keep providing the highest level of service to our community. 

Details:

  • Last day to donate to get in the raffle will be 10/29/2020.
  • Raffle winner will be chosen while on Facebook Live at Grocery Outlet on Friday, 10/30/2020.
  • Once the shopping spree groceries are rung up, an amount equal to the total bill will be donated to Bishop Fire Department.  *BFD lost revenue from two major events due to COVID-19; Fireworks and Destruction Derby.
  •  If winning shopper can guess the value of his/her groceries within $5, Grocery Outlet will double the donation to the Bishop Fire Department.
