Let’s Celebrate LaunchSAVANNAH!
Local council to mark a successful first year
LaunchSAVANNAH is the Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce council that unites young professionals to learn, network, and help local charities. The business organization plans to celebrate its first anniversary with an evening party on June 17. This enjoyable, two-hour event will take place at the Charles H. Morris Center on East Broad Street. It begins at 5:30 pm and features snacks, beverages, cake, and live music.
What to Expect
Like all LaunchSAVANNAH events, this party provides a good opportunity for you to network with fellow business people in the Savannah area. The council encourages professionals between 22 and 40 years old to attend the celebration. It is sponsored by First Citizens Bank and the Georgia Southern University College of Business. This party will resemble last year’s June event at the maritime museum.
Local band Tell Scarlet will appear at the celebration. This popular Savannah group plays a tremendous variety of music from the past and present, including disco, rock, pop, funk, country, and even jazz. Formerly known as Briar Rose, the group regularly appears at weddings and parties along the southern East Coast.
The local chamber of commerce established this council to help young professionals succeed in coastal Georgia’s largest city. Business people do not have to join the chamber to become LaunchSAVANNAH members. You might confuse this group with the Young Professionals of Savannah, but it is not the same organization. The chamber inaugurated LaunchSAVANNAH at a free, June 2013, event that publicized the new council’s goals.
This organization holds business get-togethers monthly. It hosted a holiday oyster roast that brought local professionals together and collected toys for a nonprofit group. The Savannah Business Journal reported that LaunchSAVANNAH members also volunteered at a Habersham Street nursing home on weekday nights in February. Each evening, the council sent 20 volunteers to help local seniors.
