The Chamber’s 54th annual Sam’s Furniture Teacher Appreciation Event is set for August 7. While COVID-19 has forced the event to be virtual this year, the biggest and best event of its kind in the nation will be held!

There are three ways you and your business can participate in this incredible event:

  • Nominate a deserving Springdale teacher for the Sam’s Furniture Makeover Giveaway award. Joe and Larra Donaldson continue to generously honor deserving teachers with a complete home furniture makeover. Anyone can nominate a deserving teacher. Click here to nominate them online.
  • Become a Vendor Sponsor of the event. These $250 sponsorships will include an opportunity to contribute company promotional items for each teacher that the Chamber will deliver to each school, inclusion in the event program and the opportunity to submit a short “Thank You” video to be watched by all teachers during the program. Click here to sign up as a Vendor Sponsor.
  • Donate a Teacher Door Prize. Every year, our members donate one or more gifts valued at $100 or more that are then given away to our teachers in a drawing during the event. Your company name and gift will be shared with every Springdale educator during the event. Click here to donate a gift.

This year’s Sam’s Furniture Teacher Appreciation Event will be virtual. Instead of 2,000 teachers coming together for the festivities, the instructional staffs will gather at their respective schools and watch our live program. We’ll still be drawing names and giving away great door prize gifts. And, the livestream telecast gives our sponsors even more exposure. Instead of Vendor Booths for companies to distribute promotional gifts, the Chamber is collecting those items and will deliver one of each donated item to teachers at each school.

“This is how our business community says ‘thank you’ to our great teachers,” said Perry Webb, Chamber president and CEO. “The only thing that’s really different is that we won’t be able to hear the screams of delight when we call out the names of teachers who have won a gift donated by our members.”
