WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING DONATIONS OF ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITIES AND BUSINESS SERVICES FOR OUR OCTOBER 11, 2017 AUCTION. YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF THE MEADVILLE-WESTERN CRAWFORD COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE TO DONATE A PACKAGE. PLEASE CONTACT KAREN STAUDT AT THE CHAMBER OFFICE FOR MORE INFORMATION.
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?
MARK YOUR CALENDARS! Don't miss this opportunity to get some great deals on advertising and business services!
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 8th Annual Advertising & Business 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 Movies at Meadville. Doors will open at 5:00 pm for a social hour and bidding will begin promptly at 6:00.
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!
There is no cost to attend but please RSVP so we can let the caterers know how many to plan for. There will also be a cash bar and hors d'oeuvres available.
This is a Chamber members-only event, unless you are invited by a member.
Chamber Members: Here's a great incentive to attend... We'll be doing a SUPER AUCTION DRAWING! Every company in attendance at the auction with a bidder number will get a chance at winning their choice of either free membership dues for one year (up to $250 value) OR 3 full page newsletter ads ($300 value). One entry per business, you must have a bidder number to participate and be present to win. If a non-member wins the drawing, they can only win the membership dues.
CHECK BACK IN LATE SEPTEMBER/EARLY OCTOBER TO VIEW THE CATALOG. (Note: this catalog is subject to change between original publication and the date of the auction as more packages are added).
Payment options accepted include cash, check, MasterCard, Visa, Discover and AMEX.
