Chamber’s Annual Banquet & Benefit Auction!

April 15, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The Chamber and the Chocolate Factory is the theme for this years Annual Banquet & Benefit Auction which will be held on April 15 at The Gathering Place! The fun will begin at 5:30 pm with a silent auction followed by a delicious dinner and the live auction. We hope that you will consider donating items for the silent and live auctions and/or be a monetary sponsor. Many of you have already donated and we would like to say “thank you”!!

Watch for the invitations which will be going out in the mail real soon!!

Thank you to our Major Event Sponsor: Union Community Bank, Mount Joy

If your business does not have an item to offer, we suggest buying an item from another Chamber member to donate or give a monetary sponsorship to help cover the costs of putting together such a big event. We also would like to get as many volunteers lined up as possible. There are many things that need done now and up to and including the day of the banquet. Below is a list of some of the responsibilities and how we can use your help.

Pre event: Phone calls, donation procurement, set-up & decorations (we could always use some extra hands!), general preparations

During event: Beverage table, check in and check out.

Also, if there is anyone who would like a special “role” in the event….(i.e. if anyone would like to be a specific “character” that we can incorporate into the evenings activities…) please let us know.

The Annual Chamber Banquet & Benefit Auction is one of two fundraisers that the Chamber holds each year. Proceeds from this fundraiser help to financially support the $4,000 in annual scholarships that the Chamber awards to local students each year to further their education. Do not hesitate to be in touch with the Chamber office if you can volunteer or have any questions.

Two drawings will be done for the cover of the 2016/2017 Chamber Directory. Your two ways for a chance to be on the cover are:

1. Anyone who is a monetary sponsor or donates to the live and silent auctions (if you do both your name will be in twice)

2. Anyone who attends the annual banquet & benefit auction.
