Click here for a print quality tabloid size poster you can display! (right-click then Save-Link-As).

This year's new twist on our community built event is to raise funds to finish the buildout of the Piedmont Benevolence Center's Food Distribution Warehouse. Completed, their warehouse will provide a local dropoff/pickup location for (less expensive) bulk food available to all our area food banks. All proceeds will be donated to the Piedmont Benevolence Center 501c(3)!!!

Come build with us! 

BUILD YOUR BUSINESS (or ORGANIZATION)! Bring plenty of business cards and flyers! Dust off that elevator pitch and promote what you do. 

BUILD YOUR AUDIENCE! Bring your portfolio! Bring some samples to hang or display on the walls. Bring your instrument and we'll give you an open mic! Bring a demo CD for us to play as background music.

BUILD YOUR CASE! Are you in local government or a fellow member of the Chamber of Commerce? Come tell us what direction you'd like to see Anniston and Calhoun County head.
