They say “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, and we’re living that quote with Schmooza Palooza. Based on positive feedback in 2014, we’ve decided once again to hold our annual spring picnic at Dominion’s Picnic Area at Innsbrook on May 7th.

We also heard you loud and clear about lighting. You wanted more of it. So BAM! Schmooza will be from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. this year, allowing for more daylight for our exhibitors as they close up shop (and allowing you to leave work early).


“We are not opposed to more daylight and/or leaving work early.”

The list of exhibitors is growing, so get your tabletop before they sell out. (How does an outdoor event “sell out?” Well, it does.) Early bird deadline is April 10th, after that, the rate goes up. And remember, only Chamber members can purchase tabletops.


Exhibiting the night away

The sun will shine, music will play, and beer will flow. You’ll have the opportunity to meet and catch up with some of the coolest business types around RVA all while playing corn hole. Where else can you exchange a card and toss a bean bag at the same time?


Do you have what it takes to win our cutthroat corn hole tournament?

In addition to all of this, you can bid on some fantastic local prizes in the silent auction. It all depends on what you’re into. You can walk away with some gift cards, a few original paintings, hard cider, t-shirts or all of the above if you’re a savvy bidder. Place some bids, walk away, have some food, and we’ll let you know if you’ve won. If you’d like to donate an item to the auction, now is the time to let us know.


So many Silent Auction items from which to choose.

None of this would be possible without our sponsors, who are local companies just like you. If you see one, please say thank you.


“Thank you, generous sponsors!”

I’ve talked about it, and now it’s time for you to be about it. Get tickets for your team, your clients and your friends, then grab your hats and umbrella drinks, and we’ll see you at Schmooza on May 7th.
