• Chamber's Gulfport Reports focusing on economic benefits of sports and quality of life services

    The Gulfport Chamber of Commerce presents its Gulfport Reports: Sports and Quality of Life Economic Benefits program Wednesday, March 4, in the Regions Banquet Room of the Knight Nonprofit Center. Gulfport Leisure Services Director Gus Wesson and Mississipi Gulf Coast YMCA CEO Rob Kirkland, will provide updates on services and projects that benefit residents of Gulfport and the Coast.

    Doors will open at 7:30 a.m. with a buffet breakfast, followed by the program from 8 to 9 a.m.

    “While sports and quality of life services provide family fun, they also are important economic drivers for the city that also provide a ripple effect of benefits to local businesses,” says Tracy Yanez, director of the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce. “In addition to an update on the city’s Leisure Services, we’ll hear more details about the effort to build a new state-of-the-art YMCA on Hwy. 605 in Gulfport.”

    Tickets are $20 for Chamber members and $30 for general admission. For more information, call the Chamber office at 228.604.0014 or email tracy@mscoastchamber.com.
