FLINT TWP. — This year’s Swartz Creek Area Chamber of Commerce 8th annual STARZ awards event will shine some of its light on the West Flint Business Association.
The Chamber has selected the WFBA as a beneficiary of a silent auction fundraiser held during the annual community awards, according to a press release.
WFBA is asking its members and supporters to donate items to the silent auction and/or for a live auction of about five higher-valued items.
Anyone interested in donating is asked to contact Linda Russell at 810- 241-2458 to arrange for the item to be picked up before the auction.
It will be held from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on June 23 at the Swartz Creek Performing Arts Center, One Dragon Drive in Swartz Creek. All WFBA members are invited to attend the free event.
Besides presenting awards to several honorees, the evening will include the silent and live auctions, hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, and other refreshments.
Laughing GASS, a comedy troop, will provide live entertainment. Casual dress is recommended.
Auction proceeds will benefit the WFBA 2016 scholarship fund. Each year the organization gives three $2,500 scholarships to local students.
