"It's part of our service to the members of the chamber to give them a chance to do business with each other, to maintain their contacts, names and brand recognition," said Scott Raty, president and chief executive of the Pleasanton Chamber.
"We have three of these programs each year and our members believe they contribute to the sense of doing business locally," he added.
