Chamber Comes Uncorked – Wonka Style

Join the Chambersburg Chamber for a new fundraising experience; Chamber Uncorked will feature an exciting theme with games of chance, delicious food, wine and elaborate decorations designed to make the night unforgettable.

More than 100 guests are expected to attend this semi-formal evening on April 4 at 6 p.m. at The Orchards. The theme, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971), will include Wonky games of chance, unique Willy Wonka décor, interactive photo ops, live and silent auctions, music, networking and more.

The evening will feature wines from Adams County Winery and Jan Zell Wines at the Fizzy Lifting Drink Station, heavy hors d’oeuvres crafted by Chef Michael Kalathas (inspired by Violet’s three-course dinner gum) and a Chocolate River Fountain. To top off the evening, guests will enjoy a seated wine and dessert pairing. In the words of Willy Wonka, “There’ll be so much time and so little to do…wait a minute, strike that, reverse it!” 

“This event is an opportunity for our members and community residents to have some fun while supporting the local business community,” said Steve Christian, president of the Chambersburg Chamber. “We appreciate the donations and sponsorships from area businesses and look forward to having more community members join us this year.”

Exclusive sponsor opportunities are available for businesses seeking to increase their exposure to community and business leaders. They include the Grand Sponsor for $3,500, Wine Sponsor for $2,000 and Live Auction Sponsor for $1,000. Other sponsorships include Benefactor for $500 and Patron for $225; each include preferred seating at the event. 

Tickets are $70/person and are on sale now through April 1. The dress is semi-formal, and guests are encouraged to dress as characters from Willy Wonka if desired.
