March comes roaring in with a full schedule of Rainbow Chamber events, beginning with Drag Queen Bingo benefiting West Sacramento Historical Society on Thursday, March 2, at Mango’s, with some extra special prizes!

Congratulations to our Chamber corporate sponsor, Outword Media Marketing Events, on presenting the 5th Annual LGBT Wedding Expo Saturday, March 5, noon to 4 p.m., at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento. Since the first expo in 2013, just a month after the U.S. Supreme Court decision overturning California’s Prop 8, the Wedding Expo has been an annual celebration of love and equality for the Sacramento community, featuring free food and wine tastings, music and an LGBT bridal fashion show. Please join us if you can! If you’re a Chamber member, please consider volunteering to work a shift in our Chamber booth, where you can display your business materials and meet and greet potential clients or customers. Contact me at 916-801-8787 or email me at if you’re interested in being part of this exciting community event.

We have two multi-chamber events coming up in March–a Chamber Orientation & Lunch March 9 at Dante Club and How to Do Business with SMUD and RT on March 15 at University of the Pacific Sacramento campus. These events are presented as part of an exciting new partnership between Rainbow Chamber and the Sacramento Black and Hispanic Chambers and City of Sacramento Economic Development. Don’t miss these opportunities to broaden your network of potential customers and colleagues!

Chamber member Badlands will host our March Madness Mixer, 6 to 8 p.m. on the 21st!

The 2nd Annual RainbowPAC Crab Feed Feb. 25 at Dante Club was a roaring success, raising a record sum to support LGBT- and business-friendly candidates and legislation. Check out event photos here and in our Facebook album! Thanks to everyone who attended and contributed!

We can’t wait to see you at an upcoming Chamber event!
