This year’s annual Sustainable Resources Campaign (SRC), The Producers! A Show Stopper Campaign, led by Campaign Chair, John Wilson, WBR Insurance and Campaign Co-Chair, Susie Archer, Old Dominion Steel Container, kicked off in style on Thursday, April 26, 2012. Amid thunderstorm warnings and threatening weather, more than 50 business executive and volunteers gathered at the Little Theatre of Norfolk to kick off this season of fund raising at an event catered by the Dancing Tomato.
A goal of $850,000 is set for 2012 and we are well on our way at nearly $355,000 raised to date! There is still time to get on the stage crew and raise resources for the Chamber.
