THE Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce and Industry held its highly anticipated Business at Dusk event at the Wonderland of Lights in Queens Park on Friday night.

More than 90 Chamber members turned out for the Carroll Media sponsored event and enjoyed a night of bright lights, fine food and beverages, networking and great company.

 

Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Greg Johnson said the Wonderland of Lights is one of four major free events the Chamber holds each year for its members.

"The highlight of the night was the auction of the right to officially turn on the switch to ignite the lights with the proceeds going the Lions Club of Toowoomba West," Mr Johnson said.

"As has been the case in the past, members were extremely generous in bringing along a variety of non-perishable foods, gifts and gift cards to be used by Lifeline in its annual appeal to assist the less fortunate at Christmas.

"A call also went out to members to donate additional items in the lead-up to Christmas to help the Chamber assist in another appeal, The Chronicle Adopt-A-Family Appeal," he said.

Mr Johnson said the last Chamber event for this year was the Skytrans Chamber Golf Challenge next Friday, December 14 at the Toowoomba Golf Club Middle Ridge.

He said a feature of the day will be "fill CEO Greg Johnson's Great Wall challenge" in which golfers will be asked to donate non-perishable goods.
