An upcoming reception hosted by the San Benito County Chamber of Commerce, San Benito County Business Council and Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Central Coast will offer the business community an opportunity to engage candidates for local offices in the November mid-term elections.

The event will run 3:30 p.m to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 18 at La Catrina Mexican Grill, 449 San Benito Street in Downtown Hollister. Refreshments are sponsored by JRG Attorneys at Law.

The Chambers and Business Council do not endorse candidates, but encourage members and the business community at-large to be informed and engage individually on local issues and opportunities. They invite the local business community to join in a casual evening of networking with fellow business owners as we meet with candidates running for local, state and federal office.

The organizations also encourage all to attend the BenitoLink – Farm Bureau – Youth Alliance Elections Forum following the event at 6:30 p.m. in the San Benito High School Auditorium.

Please call (831) 272-4075 contact email the Hispanic Chamber at with questions or to RSVP. RSVPs are also being collected on the event’s Facebook page at
