I’m picking up good vibrations about The Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce’s first signature event of the year coming up this Thursday, January 22nd. It’s the Second Annual Gala and Silent Auction, tickets are still available and the theme for the night is “Good Vibrations”. I’ll toast to that! Join fellow Chamber members, guests and staff at the Stonegate Conference & Banquet Centre (2401 West Higgins Rd. in Hoffman Estates) for a delightful evening of dinner, dancing and networking.
The silent auction will feature exciting products and services donated by members. Some of last year’s items included a three-day rental of a brand new Porsche; a week’s stay at a luxury home in Michigan; Chicago sports team tickets and memorabilia; gift baskets filled with fine wines and liquors; spirits; a selection of antique handbags; gift baskets with all kinds of certificates and products from our members; and so much more!
Enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres followed by a sumptuous dinner and dessert. They will also recognize outstanding Chamber and community members, and swear in the 2015 BACC Board of Directors. Music will be provided by live DJ.
The cost to attend is $50 per chamber member, $60 for guests and $95 for chamber members with a guest. To purchase tickets, call the Chamber at 847-381-2525 or CLICK HERE to sign up online.
Proceeds from the Gala benefit Chamber programs and events throughout the year. Funds also support the Lauren Brown Scholarship Fund which awards scholarships to Barrington-area high school graduates each year who are pursuing careers in marketing, communications and related fields.
