No BBC This Friday February 27th – for Chamber IslandWood Breakfast

This Friday, BBC takes a holiday in honor of February Chamber IslandWood Breakfast and American Heart Month.

February Chamber Breakfast, this Friday the 27th, 7:30-9:00 AM – @ IslandWood, 4450 Blakely Ave. February is national American Heart Month and this month’s sponsor, Harrison Bainbridge, will present information about cardiovascular disease and how to stay “heart healthy” for yourself and your loved ones. (Like, before you’re dead, live strong, take care of yourself — if not for yourself, then for those you care about….)

“Located right on the island, Harrison Bainbridge offers comprehensive care including 24/7 urgent care, Harrison HealthPartners primary care, specialty care, diagnostic imaging and lab services to keep you healthy. Harrison Bainbridge is part of the Harrison Medical Center family of services, with hospitals in Silverdale and Bremerton and Harrison HealthPartners clinics throughout the West Sound. We are affiliated with CHI Franciscan Health.” 

Enjoy a full breakfast provided by the IslandWood kitchen. The public is welcome. Cost: In Advance – Save $5.00 by signing up online before 9:00 PM, Wed., Feb. 25, or by calling 206-842-3700 before 5:00 PM Wed.

So, if you haven’t  been to a Chamber breakfast before, IslandWood throws a fantastic feast, there’s great opportunity for networking, schmoozing (not snoozing), and learning more about the Bainbridge Island Chamber Of Commerce.

Next BBC will be a week from Friday, March 6th.
