Greenville Chamber of Commerce set to host its annual auction || July 27, 2019

-


The Greenville Chamber of Commerce, with headline partner Innovation First International, will host their annual auction on July 27, 2019. This year’s theme will be Chamber-opoly and will include games and prizes centered around the popular Monopoly board game.

A portion of the proceeds from this auction will go to support the Non-Profit of the Year Award through the Greenville Chamber Foundation, making donations a tax-deductible contribution. Last year, the award went to CASA of Hunt County. CASA retains volunteer advocates for children in the foster care system who have come mainly from abusive homes. Last year, CASA in Hunt County had 184 new children who entered the system. The funds from the award were used to purchase work stations which included desks, chairs, computers and printers for their 66 volunteers who advocate for about 200 children in our area.

  1. In the past we have always donated a nice television or guitar to this event. Last year I offered a nice television. I was told they wouldn’t accept a television but would accept a rather pricey piece of jewelry. I was was quite disappointed in how picky they were about the donations.
