Santa Monica Chamber Announces Prestigious Toast of Santa Monica Event

Event to Showcase Business Excellence and Community Spirit

The Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for its highly anticipated Toast of Santa Monica: June Board Installation event, slated for June 20th, 2024, from 5:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the historic Fairmont Miramar.

This annual gathering is not just a welcoming ceremony for the Chamber’s newest board members but also a significant tribute to the remarkable achievements of Santa Monica’s business community. It is a testament to the city’s vibrant culture and thriving commerce.

Guests can look forward to a unique experience, starting with a cocktail hour beneath the iconic fig tree, serenaded by the captivating jazz music of the SAMOHI band. The evening will then transition to a lavish dining experience in the grand ballroom of the historic Fairmont Miramar, with a delicious dinner featuring beef, salmon, or a vegan option. A Malibu winery will bring special wines for the evening along with the hotel’s amazing cocktail menu. 

The evening’s highlight will feature awards to four esteemed business leaders: the Nat Trives Award, the Chair Award, the Business Leader Award, and the Community Leader Award. Senator Ben Allen will comment on the event, renowned business leader Rick Caruso will give a keynote address, and Santa Monica Vice Mayor Lana Negrete will give a heartfelt toast. Monsignor Torgerson will give the invocation. 

Rick Caruso will speak about the future of business and the economy and engage in a future-focused conversation to uplift the city of Santa Monica.

The event also offers a valuable networking opportunity, with an afterparty at the delightful Bungalow, a chance to participate in the Best of Santa Monica raffle giveaway, and to witness the presentation of gifts to the Boys and Girls Clubs. 

“We are thrilled to host The Toast of Santa Monica: June Board Installation event,” remarked Judy Kruger, CEO of the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce. “This occasion not only celebrates the growth of our Chamber board but also recognizes the invaluable contributions of Santa Monica’s business leaders. It’s a testament to our vibrant community and an acknowledgment of the impact that collaboration and innovation have on our city. We look forward to an evening of networking, inspiration, and celebration of shared success.”
