Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce to Host Margarita Madness at Hampshire Mall!


Hadley, MA – Hampshire Mall and Interskate91 are proud to be partnering with the Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce to host their signature Margarita Madness Event!


To kick off the spring season, Margarita Madness will be held on Thursday, March 28th from 5:30pm-7:30pm at Interskate91.  This event is the Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce’s biggest party of the year with over 500+ business leaders and decision makers from across the region in attendance.  There will be margarita and food tasting tables, raffles, a photo booth, decadent desserts, free laser tag, locally brewed beer, and new this year, virgin margarita options.


“We love supporting our local community and are excited to host Margarita Madness this year,” said Hampshire Mall General Manager and Amherst Area Board Member, Lynn Gray. “This is a great opportunity to grow our relationships with the Chamber, local businesses, and members of the community, while showcasing all Hampshire Mall has to offer.”


Once again, Tommy Car Auto Group will be the event’s presenting sponsor while Northampton Radio Group and the Daily Hampshire Gazette are the media sponsors.


“The teams at Hampshire Mall and Tommy Car Auto Group have been exceptionally generous and we cannot wait to bring our Amherst Area businesses together.  It’s an opportunity to highlight our local businesses and create community at the same time,” shares Claudia Pazmany, Executive Director of the Chamber.  “Leave your skates at home please.  There will be many activities but skating will NOT be one of them.”


There are more Margarita Table sponsors than ever, with 25 competing for Margarita of the Year. For a list of Amherst Area challengers in the competition, please click here.


“This is our largest field to date and having Hampshire Mall and Interskate91 host us gives us this opportunity. We cannot be more excited to bring this annual event back – even better and bigger than ever,” shares Youssef Fadel, NEPM, Committee Chair.


Additionally, event goers will help give back to the community. This year, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Tom Cosenzi Driving For the Cure, started by Carla and Tommy Cosenzi to honor the legacy of their father, Tom Cosenzi, who passed away from a glioblastoma in 2009 and dreamed of a cure for brain cancer.


Tickets to attend Margarita Madness can be purchased at amherstarea.com.
