Note from the Chamber: *This year the cards cost $10.00 each and nonprofits can keep half of the proceeds for the cards they sell (same as last year). When a nonprofit picks up cards they will have to sign a commitment form to guarantee either the return of the unsold cards or the money.  If the cards or funds are not returned, the Chamber will invoice the organization for the balance owed.
