Dec. 1: 12 Days of Shopping Holiday Auction opens

FROM WSJ STAFF REPORTS

The Wake Forest Area Chamber is sponsoring its first online auction to support local businesses while raising funds for the work of the Chamber. “Many businesses and non-profits have struggled during this pandemic,” said Ann Welton, Chamber president. “We’re excited to produce this virtual event so our community can shop locally while also supporting the Chamber.”

“The 12 Days of Shopping Holiday Auction,” is a virtual event and will be open from December 1through 12. Participants register, and then can bid on items throughout the 12 days. At the close of the auction, the highest bidder wins the item.

“There’s been a groundswell of support,” added Carol Fekaris, Chamber event specialist. “Donations are coming in from all corners of Wake Forest. We have gifts, experiences, services, and gift cards – all of which will make great holiday presents!” Some local businesses, like banks or insurance companies, can’t donate a product from their business. So, they have purchased an item from another store or restaurant to be auctioned off.  “While they’re supporting the Chamber, they’re supporting local businesses. It’s win – win!”

Auction items include a full set of tires, donated by presenting sponsor Atlantic Tire & Service. There are also swimming lessons, gift baskets, women’s clothing, gift cards to many area restaurants, and much, much more.

Any area business that would like to contribute to the auction can contact Carol Fekaris at carol@wakeforestchamber.org. Donations are still being accepted.
