The Fortuna Chamber of Commerce held their monthly mixer at Quality Antiques hosted by Wells Fargo Bank. Every year members of the chamber sign up to host the monthly mixers that draw large crowds and new businesses.

The event was catered by C & C Market with water, beer, and wine to drink. Local business members mingled while enjoying a catered treat and window shopping through the large assortment of antiques.

Guests dropped a business card for door prizes and $5 for a 50/50 raffle to help support the local chamber.

Erica Thompson of the Fortuna Chamber of Commerce gathered the crowd around to thank Quality Antiques, Wells Fargo Bank, and C&C Market for putting on a wonderful event.

The chamber promotes business and local event activity by providing a one-minute open microphone opportunity for $1. There is always a bit of laughter over those who might be a little long-winded. The money from the open microphone is used for chamber expenses and events. Many businesses take the opportunity to update the chamber on new developments or events that will soon be taking place.
