On Wednesday, May 18th more than 160 converged on CJ's on the Bay for our May After Five Networking Event and Annual presentation of our Leadership Marco Educational Scholarships.

8 fantastic local students shared in $18,000 in scholarship award money raised over the past year by two Chamber of Commerce Education Committee Events: "Wet Paint Live" and "Souper Bowl Marco". Hundreds of hours go into the planning and execution of these great community events to raise these funds.

Congratulations to all of the scholarship award winners and thank you ALL for coming out! Click HERE for the photo album: https://www.facebook.com/273921743704/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1015388...

Recently, news broke that Prince Rogers Nelson was found dead in his home in Minneapolis at age 57. He was found unresponsive in an elevator and was declared dead shortly after. Internet criminals are going to exploit this celebrity death in a number of ways, so be careful with anything related to Price's death: emails, attachments, any social media (especially Facebook), texts on your phone, anything. There will be a number of scams related to this, so Think Before You Click!

Also, with the recent earthquakes in Ecuador and Japan, there are charity scams sticking up their ugly heads. If you want to make donations, go to your favorite charity by opening your browser and type their link in the address bar. Do not click on any links in emails.
