Taste of Northbrook sinks its teeth into October

September 30, 2013 by  

The 19th annual Auction and Taste of Northbrook is being hosted by the Northbrook Chamber of Commerce in about a month’s time. It is a major fundraising event for the Chamber, and is expected to attract up to 400 Chamber members, business leaders, and their guests.

Since it is close to the end of the month, the event is expected to have a Halloween themed setting. Guests will enjoy beer, wine, and soft drinks as they get to sample the food and desserts of 19 North Shore restaurants. The evening’s activities are set to also include a live auction, a silent auction, and a raffle with a prize of $1,000.

The Chamber is accepting donations of raffle and auction prizes from local businesses. Many of those who donate items are likely to let their current customers know that they have done it, which may encourage others to attend the event. They might do this by distributing a flyer to their customers from all over the area, including nearby Wheeling. These would no doubt be provided by local printing companies.

Overall, this event is likely to be an excellent networking opportunity for Northbrook Chamber members and their guests.

The Auction and Taste of Northbrook will take place at the Renaissance Chicago North Shore Hotel on October 29 from 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm. Tickets are $25 in advance for Northbrook Chamber of Commerce members and $35 on the day for members and guests. To find out more about the event, call 847-498-5555.
