The Chamber’s annual auction was a tremendous success with more than $22,000 raised. The Kentucky Derby Affair was held on April 24 at the Alderbrook Resort & Spa and invited gentlemen to pop their collars, women to don their hats, and everyone to bid high! Even the silent auction boasted a graceful southern style. Grand goodies to bid for included custom framed photography, flower baskets, wine tastings, and nights out on the town to world class golf, romantic getaways, Seahawks packages, and fantasy flights.
Photo Sponsor Columbia State Bank made the night unforgettable capturing all the fun. They, along with our Souvenir Sponsor Peninsula Credit Union made it possible to outfit each guest with a glass perfect for Mint Juleps or a simple southern sweet tea, making it easy to fill up with a nice cold beverage thanks to our Watering Hole Sponsor Olsen Furniture. After all, a Derby wouldn’t be the same without ice cold refreshments to cool down those wagers.
This trophy-worthy committee – Chair Lisa Woodard, Columbia Bank; Stephanie Boysen, Jitterbug Espresso; Lisa Brengan, Mason Fire District 4; Mindi Brock, Our Community Credit Union; Daris Devaney, Our Community Credit Union; Cindy Hall, Mt. View Elementary School; Carrie Lemmon, United Way of Mason County; John Lester, Arnold & Smith Insurance; Jan Lovig, Senior Services for South Sound; Jennifer Owens, Peninsula Credit Union; Susanna Samuelson, Our Community Credit Union; and Karen Schade, Edward Jones – made it a night to remember. And, of course, we could never host such an event without the stellar support of Alderbrook Resort & Spa. We are so thankful for their support of the Mason County business community.
We hope you will join us in April for the 2016 event!
