Chamber pulls off a successful Community in Unity

Despite having just survived a corporate earthquake that many organizations don’t weather, the Escondido Chamber of Commerce—volunteers all—came together Thursday evening to put on a remarkably successful 13th annual Community in Unity under the City Hall rotunda.

It was a remarkable effort.According to Chairman Deanna Smith, almost 1,000 toys were donated for  needy children by the end of the evening. There was a separate collection for pajamas.

There was a nice variety of foods to choose from vendors arranged in a half-moon around the edge of the rotunda. Participants included Black Angus, the Brigantine, California Center for the Arts, Escondido, Cocina del Charro, Cordiano Winery, Dr. Boochart Kombucha, Four Tunas Fish & Bar, the Grand Tea Room, O’Sullivan’s, Pizza Time, Sierra Madre Cantina. Photos of participants were taken by 360 V Photobooth.

They also helped with a lot of tasks requiring muscles, like bringing in tables and chairs from City Hall, and carrying them back after it was over.
