NEWBURYPORT – Newburyport Bank has donated $1,500 to the Chamber Collaborative of Greater Portsmouth as a sponsor of their Summer Detour. This event will take place on Thursday, August 4, from 5-8 pm at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club in Portsmouth, NH, and will feature the annual business awards.
Summer Detour! will be the Chamber’s biggest fundraising event of the year – a highly attended gathering for local businesses and members of the Portsmouth community. Born in 2012 when members dined al fresco in the middle of Pleasant Street, it has been met with enthusiasm from Chamber members and non-members alike, coming from all corners of the Seacoast to celebrate the love of Portsmouth.
“Our local chambers are so vital to the overall development of our communities,” said Lloyd L. Hamm, Newburyport Bank President & CEO. “And this great event presents the opportunity to honor those that stand out with the annual business awards. Providing recognition to those that make our communities better places to live is always something to celebrate, and we’re proud to support the event.”
