Enjoy an evening of sumptuous food and enticing auction items at the 26th Annual Auction & Taste on October 28. For members and community leaders, this signature event at the Renaissance Chicago North Shore Hotel is a high point of the year. As the Chamber’s largest fundraiser, the Auction supports community outreach activities like meal packing and also keeps Chamber participation affordable for members.
The Renaissance’s beautiful ballroom will be filled with food stations from 17 of the North Shore’s most popular restaurants, each offering “tastes” of their specialties. Attendees can savor their favorites while they browse a wide range of silent auction offerings.
Chamber members have gone above and beyond with donations to the Auction to ensure a varied selection of attractive options. Plan a special evening with theatre tickets and a restaurant gift certificate, or gather a foursome for a fun day on the golf course. Memberships and programs from fitness clubs provide great motivation to meet your exercise goals. Gift baskets with items from Northbrook’s most popular retailers offer something for everyone.
The excitement builds with a live auction of exceptional packages. Auctioneer Ron Bernardi of Sunset Foods will lead the bidding on a Lasik procedure at Glenbrook Hospital, Bulls and Blackhawks tickets, and more. Capping the evening will be the drawing for the Grand Prize of $1000 sponsored by Highland Baking. More than 30 other prizes will also be awarded to lucky raffle winners.
Members are encouraged to invite friends, clients and colleagues for an evening of great food, fun, and socializing. Advance registration through October 18 is $35, covering the sampling buffet as well as complimentary beer, wine and soda. Raffle tickets are available for $5 each, or $20 for a pack of five tickets. Winners do not need to be present at the event. Click the button to the right to register.
