Malden Chamber breaking out the hard hats

MALDEN — The Malden Chamber of Commerce partners with Forestdale Park Senior Living Residences for “Hardhats & Cocktails,” a networking event scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 19, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Local business representatives are encouraged to join Chamber members for an evening of networking on the outdoor patio at Forestdale Park Senior Living Residences at 341 Forest St., Malden, slated to open in early 2018.  

Located at the site of the Malden’s former McFadden Manor, the Residences will feature three independent living apartments, and 59 studio and one-bedroom assisted living apartments for traditional residents and those with early symptoms of memory loss.

Forestdale Park will also accommodate 18 seniors in a state-of-the-art residence which specializes in holistically treating the symptoms of cognitive issues including Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. 

In addition to complimentary wine, beer and bites, Tenure Vodka will also be offering a sampling of their signature cocktails. The Sept. 19 event is free for Chamber members, $10 for non-members via RSVP to [email protected]

The Chamber successfully hosted its second annual Chamber Super Bowl to raise money for Triangle, Inc. Chamber members took over Town Line Luxury Lanes with 32 teams representing Malden businesses and organizations packing the popular bowling alley to compete for a shot at the “Chamber Cup.”  

Teams were encouraged to bring their best “Team Spirit” with many sporting custom bowling shirts, coordinating costumes and creative team names. Gattineri Family Ventures, Malden Taxi and Stoneham Bank sponsored lanes for participants of the many programs at Triangle,Inc. Each team completed two strings with the “most pins down” winner taking home the coveted “Chamber Cup,” a giant trophy passed from winner to winner each year.  Scoring a total of 2,125 points, L&L Services took home the cup for the second year in a row with Boston Smoke Shop coming in second and The Malden YMCA in third place.  

The Chamber also honored the teams that displayed the best team spirit and scored the lowest amount of points.  The Malden Redevelopment Authority took home the “Team Spirit” trophy for the second year in a row for their “Burke’s Bee’s” coordinating costumes (a play on Executive Director Debbie Burke’s last name and the famous “Burt’s Bee’s” lip product) and New England Security took home the Gutter Ball trophy.

The event raised $2,200 for Triangle, Inc., which was presented to the local nonprofit at Town Line Luxury Lanes with the help of the event committee members and fellow Chamber members.
