All Chamber of Commerce members are invited to network and tour United Way on Friday morning, February 4 at 7:30 a.m. at 2504 Aga Drive, Alexandria.

The event also provides an opportunity to pick up tickets to the United Way's Beer and Wine Tasting Gala taking place on February 25 at Arrowwood Resort and Conference Center.

The gala is supported by more than 15 different food and wine vendors providing food and more than 40 beers and wines from around the world to sample.
