Due to COVID – 19 the Chamber had to cancel their fund-raising events for the year – Agate Days, Moose Triathlon and BrewFest. They even had to cancel the 4th of July parade. It has been a hard year for everyone and a difficult summer for the Chamber with these cancellations. Not only were these events the biggest sources of revenue for the year for the Chamber but these are some of the biggest events hosted that bring out the community along with people from all over the state and surrounding areas.
Virtual Events are popping up all over the country in order to find creative and safe ways to still host events. The Moose Lake Area Chamber of Commerce has done the same thing with the creation, COVID Can Kiss My Agates 2020 Virtual Golf Event.
Golf is one sporting event that can still happen due its natural social distancing. The Chamber created this event after seeing the success of their annual Nine and Dine Golf Outing that was still allowed to happen. It was such a fun day the Chamber created this event that is perfect for some friends to get together, raise funds for a good cause, win prizes and still have fun and stay safe.
With the cancellations of events this summer the Moose Lake Area Chamber of Commerce shifted focus on helping area Chamber Businesses. They were able to fundraise and support local businesses with grants and purchasing gift cards from local businesses. The Chamber was able to support close to $30,000 worth of grants and gift cards.
Even with the silly title the Chamber understands the seriousness of COVID - 19 and with that they still wanted to create an event that people could participate in that could help the community, raise funds and have fun while doing it.
Golfers of all experiences are wanted! Look out for the Chamber's Facebook Event page, COVID Can Kiss My Agates 2020 Virtual Golf Event as it will have more information about the event.
