Our Annual Bi Chamber Clambake will be held on Wednesday, August 19th.   Again we would like to invite you to participate in a silent auction.  We are asking chamber members to contribute a gift in the name of their company that will benefit their respective chamber.  The donated item is to be given at your discretion, but we are adding an incentive plan in place that you will find hard to ignore!  We are offering you the opportunity to obtain free clambake tickets that will coincide with the value of your gift.  Valued donations of $100-$150 you may purchase one ticket at ½ price.  Valued donations of $150 and over will receive 1 complimentary ticket. Your donation may be dropped off at the chamber office or we can pick it up.  Should you wish to make a contribution, please contact the office by email with a description of your gift, value and when you will be dropping it off or arrange pick up.  Last year we had over 250 chamber members and guests in attendance, don’t miss this networking opportunity.  See attached flyers.
