Chamber soliciting donations to their Annual Silent Auction

Barriere and District Chamber of Commerce are preparing to host their 10th Annual Silent Auction

Barriere and District Chamber of Commerce are preparing to host their 10th Annual Silent Auction the evening of Feb. 22, in the North Thompson Fall Fair Hall.

The Silent Auction is the Chambers’ largest fundraiser, with the event relying on the donation of auction items, and friendly competition among generous bidders.

The proceeds provide much needed funds to build a stronger Chamber and a stronger business community.

This year’s theme is “Celebrate Barriere’s 100th Birthday”.  To celebrate this, and the 10th Annual Silent Auction, Chamber executive note they plan to have an additional  grand prize to be awarded at the end of the night.  WestJet Airways has partnered with the event, and has generously donated a travel voucher for two to anywhere that WestJet goes.

In addition to the Silent Auction, the evening will also include the Business of the Year Awards presentation. This is a great event to recognize the Business/Business Person who makes the extra effort to provide Barriere and area residents with exemplary services.

The Silent Auction and Business of The Year Awards event is open to the general public. Space is limited, so please call the Chamber office for your event ticket.

Area businesses are urged to participate by donating an auction item to the event and by attending as an active bidder on auction items.

To donate an auction item you can call or email the Chamber office at: bcoc@telus.net, 250-672-9221, or fax 250-672-1866.
