Our Annual Dinner and Chance Auction are returning! We will begin the evening with cocktails at 5:30 p.m. and dinner 6:15 p.m. Then, our program will begin with the installation of our 2023 Board of Directors and the recognition of some amazing Chamber members - the recipients of the InstaGRAMMY, Chamber Champion, Ambassador of the Year, Member of the Year, and Small Businessperson of the Year.
We will close out the evening with a fun and exciting Chance Auction! Never been to one? It is a cross between a live auction and a raffle. Each guest will receive a list of items to be sold during the live auction and a paddle with an individualized number. Guests will then "bid" on the items by placing a purchased token in a bucket placed at the center of each table. The auctioneer will roam the room while announcing numbers on the guests' paddles. The "Gonger," a VIP guest who cannot hear the numbers being called, will ring a gong at a random time. The number last called before the gong rings will win the item.
We expect to be auctioning nearly 100 prizes so be sure to buy your auction tokens when you register! They will also be available for purchase at the event.
