Thrive networking night collects donations for Salem Pantry


There may have been a brisk autumn chill in the air, but the Mill River Winery tasting room was full of warmth during Thrive’s After Hours on Nov. 2.

More than 40 members enjoyed an evening of networking and wine tasting at the Rowley winery. Owner Donna Martin prepared a delicious spread of hors d’oeuvres to pair with the wines and hard cider.

As part of the After Hours, Thrive also collected donations for the Salem Food Pantry as we head into the holiday season and colder months. As always, Thrive attendees were very generous, filling the large donation bin as well as other grocery bags.

As an added treat to the night’s event, Chamber member Kristen Zannella Photography donated raffle prizes of two gift vouchers for photo sessions, each valued at $1,000. The lucky winners were Christina Saade of E.J. Callahan & Associates and Sarah Trim.

Thank you, Donna Martin, and Mill River Winery for hosting a fantastic night.
