The annual Clovie Awards silent auction is back.
The Clovies, Cloverdale’s annual business excellence awards, will be held Nov. 17 at Northview Golf and Country Club.
As part of the Clovies celebration each year, the Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce always holds a silent auction. This year, the auction starts on October 1 and is online only.
“We still need a few donations,” House Manager Scott Wheatley said. “We require donations of items or services with a minimum value of $50.”
Wheatley said that despite the Silent Auction’s stature when measured next to the Clovie Awards gala, it’s a staple of the House’s fundraising for the year.
“It’s such an important part of our Clovies night,” he said. “Every penny we collect helps support local businesses.
Wheatley said funds raised from the silent auction go directly to help the chamber represent businesses in Clayton, Cloverdale and Campbell Heights.
“And that helps reduce costs for members.”
Wheatley said if anyone would like to donate to the silent auction, they can contact Ann Robinson at the chamber by email: [email protected]
Online bidding for the auction will end at 10 p.m. on November 17, after the Clovies gala ends.
Wheatley said tickets for the Clovie Awards will go on sale around mid-October. But before that, the finalists for the Clovie Awards will be announced on October 6 at the monthly Chambers luncheon.
“October lunch is at The Henry and tickets are still available,” Wheatley said. “The 2021 finalist will then be announced.”
