The Arlington Chamber   of Commerce is proud to announce that the 2013 development campaign,  Opportunity Works, raised a total of $272,785. This number   surpassed the goal of $260,000 and is significantly more than the Chamber has   ever raised during a development campaign. This money provides over 37% of   the Chamber’s operating budget and is crucial to the overall success of the   Chamber.Every year, beginning in   March, the Chamber kicks off an annual, four month-long, volunteer-based   development campaign. The campaign is vital for the Chamber, as it   accounts for one third of the Chamber’s operating budget each year.The campaign relies on active   volunteers to raise funds for the Chamber through recruiting memberships,   sponsorships, and advertisements with the assistance of the Chamber staff.   The connections volunteers make through the campaign benefit their businesses   and add value to their involvement. The campaign theme this year Make the Connection: Get Social.   Do Business., highlights the driving benefits of the campaign; to   get involved, connect with people, and, ultimately, do business.

This year’s campaign was led   by Campaign Co-Chairs Barbara   Nicastro, The Law Offices of Barbara E. Nicastro, and Joe Prentice,   State Department Federal Credit Union. The campaign’s success this year, and   the previous four years, was due in large part to their commitment and hard   work.

The campaign is never all   hard work and no play. Volunteers have the opportunity to attend multiple   networking rallies and our annual kick-off and victory celebrations. This   year’s volunteers had a great time celebrating at the first ever Victory   Celebration Hawaiian Pig Roast at ROCKLANDS Barbeque and Grilling Company on   July 9. Volunteers enjoyed an amazing menu of Hawaiian inspired items, custom   created by ROCKLANDS, complemented by the Hawaiian decor provided by   our Campaign Co-Chairs. It truly was a celebration like no other to mark   the conclusion of a campaign like no other.
