Batch Pride Box
All Month Long
Our longtime member Batch Nashville is bringing back the hugely successful Pride Box gift that they started last Pride month. This year, the Chamber is partnering with Batch to offer an exclusive line of gifts that celebrate Pride, chamber members, and the city of Nashville. Both gift sets feature products made by chamber members and a portion of the profits benefit the work being done by the Chamber. Gift sets are available in any quantity and are a great way for you or your company to show its "pride" in Nashville.
