    Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce to host Annual Auction virtually, December 2-5, 2021

    Newport, RI- The Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce will host its annual auction as a virtual event over a four-day period, Thursday December 2nd through Sunday, December 5th.
    “We are happy to offer this unique opportunity for the first time to the entire community to take part in supporting the Chamber, and in turn, supporting our region’s local businesses. This year’s theme is “Holidays by the Sea” as this event will help to promote celebrating the holiday season by shopping and eating locally and supporting all that our city by the sea has to offer.” said executive director, Erin Donovan-Boyle.
    Proceeds from this annual event help the chamber continue to offer the business community and its workforce valuable programming, marketing opportunities, legislative advocacy, professional development, and technical support. The chamber is seeking donations from local restaurants, retailers, and any other businesses who wish to contribute a locally purchased item, experience, or gift card. Attendance is simple and free for anyone to join from the comfort of their home or office.
    Auction donations will ensure the donor business free marketing and will coordinate with the Chamber’s Holidays by the Sea initiative, promoting all to “Shop Small and Shop Local”. In addition to donations being listed and promoted within the online event, businesses will be recognized online, on social media, and in regular e-communications from the chamber which are sent to full membership throughout the season.
    There are six levels of donations which offer different tiers of recognition, ranging from Friend of the Chamber to Holidays by the Sea Hero. For full details about how contribute to this event, visit newportchamber.com or email Kate@newportchamber.com.
