Newport chamber to celebrate at Rosecliff

October 25, 2013 by  

The annual Silent Auction and Cocktail Reception of the Newport County Chamber of Commerce is being held right at the start of next month. The event is a fundraiser for the chamber and the programs it provides for local business.

Guests will be able to enjoy a cocktail reception with hors d’oeuvres and hard cider, dinner, dessert, and open bars. Musical entertainment will be provided during the evening by Duke Robillard. No doubt there will also be a lot of networking going on during the event too, during which there will be plenty of time to exchange digital business cards and talk about business.

Items for the silent auction are to be donated by chamber members and other local businesses. They are expected to include many sought-after items, such as trips and sports packages.

Those local business donating items, including those from nearby Middletown, might want to let their customers know about their generosity. This could be done by contacting local printing companies to provide them with a flyer that can be distributed to their current customers. This may encourage more people to attend, with a chance to win the prize.

The Silent Auction and Cocktail Reception is being held at the Rosecliff Mansion in Newport on November 1 from 6:00 – 9:00 PM. Tickets are $85 for Newport County Chamber of Commerce members or $100 for non-members; member tables are also available for $400 for four and $600 for six. Those who wish to register must do so before October 28. For more information, call 401-847-1608.
