Mark your calendar for Dec. 7.
It’s not to recognize “Pearl Harbor Day” but rather to join your neighbors and friends at the chamber of commerce’s “Vintners & Brewers” auction event.
It will be held again at the Veteran’s Hall in Electric City, starting at 6 p.m., and lasting until after the live auction that begins at 8.
The theme for this year’s event is “A Joyful Coulee Christmas,” and decorated in blues and whites, the hall will house some 180 people. It’s always sold out so better get your tickets early.
Ticket sales started last week and are available at the chamber of commerce office, H&H Grocery and The Star newspaper.
Ticket prices are $30 for a single, $50 for a couple and $200 for a table of 10.
Chamber officials seek item donations for both the silent and live auctions.
It’s the chamber’s final fundraiser of the year and one of the most successful events sponsored by the group.
Highlight of the evening, in addition to the auctions, is the beer and wine tasting with all the things that go with it.
In past years some of the auction items have included overnight lodging stays, shopping, dining and theater discounts, family fun activities, gift certificates, autographed sports memorabilia and more.
Deadline for inclusion of donated items is Nov. 25, chamber Executive Director Peggy Nevsimal stated.
Items can be donated through the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce office at 17 Midway Avenue, or by calling, 633-3074.
Wines are being offered from L’Ecole No. 41, Otis Kenyon, Millbrandt and Ash Hollow vineyards. Beers offered include Rocky Coulee Brewery, and Iron Horse Brewery. Appetisers are coming from Pepper Jack’s Bar & Grille.
