The Chamber also held a Silent Auctionat the event to raise money for the Leadership Chattooga Student Edition program. In order to keep the training free for high school students, the Chamber raised over $2600 with items donated by Chamber member businesses.
Atrium Health Floyd donated a Green Egg grill and a Yeti Cooler. Advent Health Redmond donated a Taste of Chattooga gift cards basket and a Blackstone grill. Living Life On Target donated a leadership training session, Traci’s Tanning Salon donated a package of tanning bed sessions, McDonald’s donated $50 gift cards, Trader’s Tab donated a Jim Pulliam framed print and a terrarium, and Try-Con Tufters donated a large area rug. The proceeds will be used to fund the Leadership Chattooga Student Edition program to cover the costs for travel, meals and training materials. A very special thanks goes to all the sponsors of the silent auction, to Chamber Board members Zach Hughes and Liza Morgan for coordinating the event, and to the bidders.
