Dear Members and Supporters,

Cancellation of 2010 Chamber Mayoral Ball

For many years, the annual Hervey Bay Chamber of Commerce Mayoral Ball has been the premier event for the local business community. This event has provided sponsors an opportunity to showcase their business as well as valuable networking opportunities to members and guests.

Unfortunately we have not been able to save this year’s ball. In part this is due to the economic downturn in the region which is reflected by an insufficient number of sponsors and not being able to secure a new Platinum Sponsor.

Whilst we have no doubt that this year’s event would have been traditionally sold out, revenue raised from ticket sales does not cover the shortfall of costs for such a prestigious event.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our current sponsors for their ongoing support and our members who continually look forward to our annual Chamber Ball.

We look forward to your support for this event in 2011.
