The Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce’s annual Holiday Dinner and Auction has been scheduled for 6 p.m. Nov. 18 at The Rosewood Room in the Country Village Shops.

A $60 ticket includes dinner catered by Alexa’s Cafe and beverages (including beer and wine), and the event is open to both chamber members and non-members. Local businesses, including chamber members, donated several items to be part of the silent and live auctions. They include a private party at Foggy Noggin Brewing with catering by Carolina Smoke BBQ, a flight on Kenmore Air, overnight stays at local hotels and gift cards to restaurants and other businesses.

The dinner and auction is the chamber’s main fundraiser, and it uses the money raised towards all of its programming, including general meetings and after hours events. “(The fundraiser) helps us keep our membership dues low,” Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Brittany Caldwell said.

During the live auction, the chamber also will take donations for the Bothell Youth Court.
