WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING DONATIONS OF ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITIES AND BUSINESS SERVICES FOR OUR OCTOBER 9, 2019 AUCTION. YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF THE MEADVILLE-WESTERN CRAWFORD COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE TO DONATE A PACKAGE. PLEASE CONTACT KAREN STAUDTAT THE CHAMBER OFFICE FOR MORE INFORMATION.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS! Don't miss this opportunity to get some great deals on advertising and business services!
Have you wanted to try new types of media to market your business? Are you looking for a discount on services you can offer to your employees or treat your clients with?
Are you in looking for new customers?
Well, you're all in for a treat. The Meadville-Western Crawford County Chamber of Commerce is holding its 10th Annual Advertising & Member Services Auction! Businesses large and small in all industries and non-profit organizations are invited to participate. Whether you're buying, selling or both, you don't want to miss this event at the Voodoo Brewery Production Facility on Bessemer Street, in Meadville. Doors will open at 5:00 pm for a social hour and silent auction items and bidding will begin promptly at 6:00.
Bid on silent auction packages beginning on Tuesday, October 8 at the Chamber office 8:00-4:30. Also, stop in early at Voodoo's Production Facility on the day of the auction from 2:00-7:00 pm to follow-up and update your bids. Winners will be announced that evening before the end of the live auction.
Local and regional promotional companies have donated all sorts of advertising opportunities, ranging from custom wine bottle labels, newspaper, radio, websites, graphic design, business cards...anything you might use to promote your business. Packages will be auctioned off at a FRACTION of the cost you might pay if you went directly to the source.
And with bids on all packages starting at just 10% of their retail values, be prepared to get some steals and deals while possibly trying some sources you might not have otherwise been able to afford.
You've got to see this to believe it. Businesses get to try new advertising sources and business services at reduced prices while the donating companies get access to new customers. It's a win-win-win situation as the Chamber also benefits from the proceeds of this fundraising event!
