Cary Chamber Auction Party 2015


Cary Chamber Reverse Car Raffle & Auction

Last night was one of our favorite events of the year!

Girl Scout Cookie Basket for Twila

Girl Scout Cookie Basket for Twila

The Cary Chamber of Commerce Annual Reverse Car Raffle and Live/Silent Auction.  It’s a great time and brings in 300-500 people!  The event is held at Prestonwood Country Club and includes tons of delicious food & drinks.   The first few hours of the event include a silent auction with over 200 items!   That’s always our favorite part!   This year, Smith & Smith, CPA donated a Girl Scout Cookie basket…filled with every kind of cookie you can get!  Congrats to Twila Wilt of Jim Wyatt, CPA for winning our basket!  Twila serves the Cary Chamber with me as an Ambassador and told me she plans to eat the cookies while she does laundry!  Sounds like a great plan to me!

Alicia’s mom also painted and donated a beautiful canvas print of the white house in downtown Cary.  Thanks for your donation!!!   The evening event also features a Live Auction segment.  My friend, and fellow ShopLocalRaleigh member, Kim Davis, offered a YEAR OF PAYROLL during the Live Auction for her business, The Paystub People.  Blake and I had several friends bidding and they won some great stuff!   After the Live Auction ended, the final part of the night was the REVERSE CAR RAFFLE!  That’s right, the LAST ticket drawn was the winner of a 2015 Chevy Cruz Car!   However, the final 5 ticket holders agreed to sell their tickets back for $1,400/each so they all walked away a winner!

Blake and I had a wonderful time and love going each year to support the Cary Chamber.  The event last night is the signature fundraiser for the Cary Chamber and goes towards supporting all of their annual programs for small business owners.  Thanks to all of the Cary Chamber Ambassadors who worked hard to collect auction gifts and also volunteered last night to keep the event running well.  Kudos to the Cary Chamber Staff for their hard-work and dedication to our community!

Thanks to my beautiful friend, Lois Cozart, Owner of My Girlfriend’s Closet in downtown Cary & downtown Apex, plus Oh La La in Cary, for dressing me for every single networking event.  Last night she suggested I wear the black & cheetah animal print top by Trina Turk!  Thanks Lois for all you do!  Shop at MCG and tell them you read to get 10% off your total purchase!  SHOP LOCAL!
