The Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International Georgia Chapter (HSMAI-GA) will be hosting an exciting event with a portion of proceeds to benefit CURE Childhood Cancer.
Registration includes open bar, passed hors d’oevres, and a three course dinner. Guests are invited to participate in a silent auction during the reception and a Chinese Auction during dinner. As part of the Chinese Auction, each attendee will receive a list of auction items and a numbered paddle. Quarters can be purchased by each attendee to bid on items. Each auction item will be in a bidding category that will range from $.50 to $1.50. The auctioneer will ask each attendee to place their quarters in the bucket, located in the middle of each table, if they would like to bid on the item. If the attendee bids on the item, they hold their numbered paddle in the air. The auctioneer will begin at random calling out the numbers of the people who bid. Meanwhile, a gonger is on the stage and is unaware of what numbers are being called. Whenever the gonger likes, he bangs the gong. The last number called by the auctioneer wins the item. This continues until all the prizes are won.
This event is fast paced and very fun! If your business would like to donate an item to be auctioned off at the event, click here. Auction items typically range in value from $25 to $1500, so any donations are welcomed. The deadline to donate items is September 17th.
