Event Recap: Chamber After Hours at Bainbridge Performing Arts – December 2023

For the Chamber’s end-of-year Holiday After Hours, a party crowd of more than 100 members headed over to the new Buxton Center for Bainbridge Performing Arts at Winslow’s Town Square on Thursday December 14.

Within the new $18M facility, Bainbridge business and community leaders enjoyed delicious snacks from BPA’s volunteer crew, sipped complementary beverages from event sponsor Eleven Winery, and ventured out onto a dance floor DJ’ed by Chamber President Stefan Goldby.

On stage in the Hodges Hall main auditorium, BPA Executive Director Elizabeth Allum and Communication & Development Coordinator Matt Longmire detailed all that was new, all that would soon grace the stage, and the additional availability of the building for event rentals.

Thanks to BPA for such generous raffle prizes especially the pair of season tickets (won by Rosette Gault), and the lovely souvenir cups for everyone in attendance
