The Seneca County Chamber of Commerce will co-host an upcoming ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening event to celebrate the growth and expansion for one of its local members, the Seneca County House of Concern. New Beginnings Boutique is a newly opened consignment shop that is owned and operated by the House of Concern, and is managed by Lynn Wimmer.
The event will include photo opportunities with a short presentation, and will take place on Wednesday July 17 at 11:00am at New Beginnings Boutique, located at 91A Fall Street in Seneca Falls. The boutique will offer a 10% discount on any items purchased from Wednesday, July 17th through Saturday, July 20th. Light refreshments will be served to those in attendance.
House of Concern Executive Director Diane Draheim stated her excitement for the expansion. “We are so pleased with this new venture, and really look forward to this open house event as an opportunity to open our doors to the
community, where local residents, businesses and community partners can stop in to see and hear firsthand what we are all about.”
The Seneca County Chamber of Commerce hopes for this exact same outcome.
“Ribbon Cutting and Open House Events are just one of the many services that we can offer to help enhance exposure for our members while marketing their businesses; and truly reap the benefits of Chamber Membership,” said Cassandra Harrington, the Chamber’s Membership Services Coordinator.
Draheim noted that the organization strives in continuing efforts towards greater awareness while participating in new projects that may result in
additional donations or other ways that benefit or assist with their causes. “Our goal is to never have to turn folks away that are in need,” she added.
The Seneca County House of Concern is a local non-profit organization established in 1969, and specializes in securing and providing food support, clothing, furniture and household items to those in need, while assisting
with other direct services such as providing advocacy for individuals.
The House of Concern joined the Chamber of Commerce in 2012 and already has taken advantage of several business and networking benefits that the Chamber provides. They were one of the local recipients to benefit from Finger Lakes Cork & Fork’s efforts towards combating hunger. Cork & Fork- a regional food, wine and agri-tourism event, is held each September at Rodman Lott & Son Farms in Seneca Falls and is managed by the Chamber. In 2012 the House of Concern was presented with a monetary donation as well as non perishable items that were collected from food drives arranged during event promotions. The 2013 Finger Lakes Cork & Fork festival will be held on Friday-Saturday, September 20-21.
