Food, Fun & Friends Create an Outstanding Auction & Taste

Food, Fun & Friends Create an Outstanding Auction & Taste

Members and friends gathered for a delicious evening as the Chamber brought back its Auction & Taste fundraiser after a pandemic-caused hiatus. Eighteen restaurants offered samples of their menu specialties as guests browsed an expansive silent auction and laughed their way through an energetic “Heads or Tails” game.  Proceeds from the event support the Chamber’s many programs and initiatives, and help keep dues affordable for businesses of all sizes and kinds.
