Chinese Auction – HOA Fundraiser

Ballroom, Saturday, January 19, 2019, 6:00 p.m.

For those of you who have never attended a Chinese Auction… this event is a blast! Please join us on Saturday, January 19, at 7:00 p.m. in the ballroom. Bring your quarters (approx. $10 to $20) and get ready to have some fun! Each attendee will receive one numbered bidding sign. A bucket will be placed at the center of each table, and a gong will be placed on the stage. The items up for auction will be priced at .50, .75 or $1.00. Each person who is interested in bidding on the item will be asked to place the requested amount (.50, .75 or $1.00) into the bucket. The “auctioneer” will then proceed to call out numbers listed on the bidding signs. The last number called when the gong sounds will be the winner! Sound confusing? Well you may just have to see it to believe it, but you’re going to have a great time! We’ll have all kinds of items up for auction. Each attendee is required to bring one new, unused item for auction ($15 minimum) as the entry fee (think holiday re-gifting). All profit from this event will go into the Operation Budget for future projects. Full cash bar. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
