Ameris Bank recently supported the Pooler Chamber of Commerce as platinum sponsor of the 3rd Annual Hearts for Heroes Red Tie Gala. Held on Saturday, February 11th, this year’s event directly benefited Lindsey’s Place, an organization offering day camps and weekend retreats for children and young adults with special needs.

“The Pooler Chamber of Commerce plays an integral role in supporting our entire community,” said Greater Savannah Market President Jenny Gentry. “Their support of Lindsey’s Place is a further testament towards their commitment to local businesses and our citizens.”

Pam Southard, executive director of the Pooler Chamber of Commerce adds, “It is our hope that the Pooler Chamber of Commerce and the generous sponsorship from Ameris Bank among others, will make a difference and enrich the lives of those less fortunate.”  

The Hearts for Heroes Red Tie Gala was held at the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force and included a live and silent auction. Each year, the Pooler Chamber of Commerce selects a local nonprofit organization to benefit from funds raised at the event.
