The Mercer Island Chamber of Commerce announces its first annual Women’s Business Brunch with guest speaker Claire Sumadiwirya, owner of Bellden Cafe.

To honor women’s contributions to local businesses, the Chamber of Commerce invites locals to gather for brunch, networking, and thoughtful insights from Sumadiwirya and other “Champions of Change.” To attend, please register for the brunch at the event website.

Event description from the Chamber of Commerce website:

Born in Shanghai, China, Claire moved to Bellevue, WA at the age of 12. Early on, she learned the importance of support, relationships and community. When choosing a career, Claire knew she wanted to build a social enterprise that made a difference, so she opened Bellden Cafe: a community-driven coffee shop that gives back to those in need. Since its opening, Bellden Cafe has earned numerous accolades and media coverage from The Seattle TimesReader’s Digest, KING 5, and other major outlets. Sumadiwirya was also featured on the cover of 425 Business for her philanthropic work.
