Chardon Rotary conducted their 30th annual Harvest Auction on Saturday, November 5th at the Hilton Garden Inn, Mayfield Village, Ohio.
Started from rather humble beginnings, our largest fundraiser brought in $65,000 this year. These funds will support a host of causes both local & international that are found in need throughout the year. Funds are also assigned to many Student Scholarships to pursue college curricula.
Our event raised an additional $51,000, a new record, for our annual dedicated cause, funded by Call to the Heart. This year the Call to the Heart cause was The Geauga County Special Olympics.
More than 240 guests enjoyed appetizers, a sit down dinner, open bar & after dinner snacks. Guests enjoyed exclusive bidder access to over 200 items donated by businesses & individuals from Chardon and the greater Cleveland community. Donations for Auction range from food items to garden hardware, sports paraphernalia, collector’s items, wine, liquor, jewelry, contractor services and everything in between.
Donated items are won by guests who are the highest bidder via several venues including a Silent Auction, a Chinese Auction and a Restaurant Certificate Board called “Best of Geauga”. Other venues include a Wine Board, a Stock Your Bar Board and a Lottery Ticket Board.
Games of chance include our 50/50 Raffle which is conducted throughout the evening.
A Live Auction offered items that are one of a kind experiences, many of which are customized by Rotary Club members.
The Live Auction & the Call to the Heart portions of the Event are conducted by internationally recognized auctioneer Scott Mihalic, a fellow Chardon Rotarian.
The strong spirit of our community was on display as always to make our 30th Harvest Auction anniversary very special.
So, come on out next year and enjoy an evening of fun and camaraderie with fellow Rotarians, guests & supporters alike! Our 2023 Event will be conducted on Saturday, November 4.
