Don’t be “Foolish,” Do Business in the Upstate!

(GREER, SC) The Greer Chamber today announced that it will be joining other upstate Chambers of Commerce in hosting the first annual Regional Business After Hours.  The partnership includes the following chambers: Anderson, Clemson, Easley, Fountain Inn, Greenville, Greenwood, Laurens, Mauldin, Oconee, Simpsonville, Spartanburg, Walhalla, Westminster, and the South Carolina Hispanic Chamber. It will be held on Wednesday, April 1, from 5:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at Fluor Field – home of the Greenville Drive, located at 945 S. Main Street in Greenville. Due to the event date being April Fools’ Day, its motto is Don’t be ‘Foolish,’ Do Business in the Upstate!

Virginia College is the sponsor of this first-ever Regional Business After Hours that will provide a great networking opportunity with exciting music by the renowned Swingin’ Medallions. The event will also serve as a kick-off to a $1,000,000 radio campaign featuring area businesses doing “great things” in the Upstate. Eleven radio stations (listed below) have joined forces and donated 14,000 commercials to showcase the “good news” of the Upstate through the end of the year.

Attendees will discover how their good news can be promoted throughout the evening’s activities. The radio stations and every Chamber plus select organizations will have booths and displays to share their news and happenings. The event is free and open to everyone in the Upstate community. Concession stands will be available for refreshments.
