Get in on the action
The Greater Sun City Center Chamber of Commerce is offering member businesses the opportunity to meet potential customers in Sun City Center style. Become a sponsor of the Golf Cart Poker Run the first Friday of every month and the chamber will bring 20 to 40 customers on wheels your way. You have an opportunity to make a short presentation about your products and services before handing them a playing card and sending them to their next stop.
Sponsorship is $50, or $25 and a $25 gift certificate. The certificate is a second opportunity to put your company's name out there by giving participants a chance to win it at the After Run Party.
Businesses that don't have a brick-and-mortar storefront or building on the approved golf cart path can sponsor the After Run Party in the chamber banquet room for the same price.
