As we wrap up another successful Charlevoix Chamber Business Expo, we thought back to all of the wonderful Chamber and local fundraising events we have been able to be a part of. We love giving back to the community, and we are so thankful local organizations choose to host their events with us.
The Charlevoix Chamber Business Expo took place last week, March 16, 2016. We have hosted the annual expo for seven years, partnering with the Charlevoix Area Chamber of Commerce to put on a great show for the public. We also partner with the Chamber every year to host their Annual Meeting and Awards breakfast, where Chamber members are able to see the accomplishments of the year and celebrate outstanding citizens and businesses.
One way the Castle gives back to the community is to offer the use of our rooms for free or at deeply reduced rates. In this way, we have worked with local organizations and non-profit groups including the Char-Em United Way Toast to Literacy, East Jordan Chamber of Commerce Annual Awards Dinner, Greenlight East Jordan event, Charlevoix Rotary Club St. Patrick’s Day Party, Knights of Columbus Cash Party, Women’s Resource Center ‘Women Can, Women Do’ Luncheon, East Jordan Schools’ Extravaganza, Boyne City Seniors All Night Party, St. Mary’s Northern Light’s Celebration, Charlevoix Montessori Graduation Ceremony, Charlevoix Children’s House Fright Night, Munson Hospital CAH Foundation Holly Daze, and the Charlevoix Area Trout Tournament Banquet. Additionally, we host several proms for local schools (how fun to have a prom at a Castle?!).
We are also active members in multiple chambers of commerce, including Boyne Area, Charlevoix, East Jordan, Elk Rapids, Gaylord, Harbor Springs, Indian River, Mackinaw City, Petoskey, and Traverse City. We believe that supporting our Northern Michigan communities starts with being good neighbors, so we work together to promote our wonderful corner of Michigan.
In addition to room discounts and donations for local fundraising events, Castle Farms is happy to continually provide product and service donations as auction items for events. From Gift Shop baskets and tour passes, to party packages including a venue reservation for an event, we donate items to multiple events to further support these fundraisers.
We know we would not be what we are today without the support of the communities around us and the businesses we work with, and it is important to us to extend that support to others!
