2021 Chamber Holiday Open House & Auction – SOLD OUT

December 2, 2021 @ 5:00 pm 8:00 pm

We are excited to announce that the 2021 Holiday Open House and Auction will be a hybrid event this year! What is a “hybrid event?” A hybrid event has both a virtual (online) component, as well as an in-person portion. The Annual Holiday Open House and Auction event is our largest non-dues income generator each year and allows us to keep our membership dues affordable, continue to advocate for our businesses and pursue economic development opportunities for our area.

The virtual event, which this year will be only the silent auction, will open at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, November 24, with the silent auction closing at 7:00 pm on Thursday, December 2 before the LIVE Auction starts at out in-person event. No silent auction items will be at the in-person event, however the chamber will be open on select days to preview the silent auction items.

The in-person part of our hybrid event will begin at 5:00 pm at The Hub at Village Square in Crestline on Thursday, December 2. The in-person event will include a cost to attend of $20 per ticket. COVID guidelines, as it relates to food service, are causing us to experience an increase in expenses to host the in-person event. However, we are going to be giving $10 in reverse raffle tickets for every ticket purchased! THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT!

Tickets for our annual raffle will be available again this year for $20 through the online auction site, or from any chamber board member or ambassador. The drawings for the $250, $500, $750, and $1000 prizes will be held at 6:45pm on Thursday, December 2nd at the HUB and we plan to broadcast that live to the Chamber’s Facebook page. The silent online auction will end on Thursday, December 2nd at 7pm. At that time, we will transition to the LIVE Auction at the HUB. You can still log in from home and participate in the LIVE Auction by following our auction site. You will receive an email letting you know of the items you have won from the auction, and you can pick up winning auction items at the chamber office starting at 9am on Friday, December 3rd.

We will have the Chamber office open for viewing of the all the auction items on Monday, November 29th from 4pm to 6pm and again on Tuesday, November 30th from 8am to 11am. This will be your opportunity to see items in person and start your bidding!

Our chamber ambassadors will begin calling and emailing our members to solicit donations starting Wednesday, November 4th. Items can be dropped off to the chamber office between the hours 9am and 4pm. You will be recognized for your donation to the auction on the online event site with a link to your website. This is a great way to gain exposure for your business! Your donation means that you will get your name in front of hundreds of local merchants, business owners and decision-makers.
Sponsorship for the event is $250 this year, which will include two tickets to the in-person event at the HUB on the 2nd of December, or for $400 for a sponsorship and to reserve a table of 10 for your business or organization. All sponsors will be listed prominently on the auction site during the duration of the auction.
