You are invited to the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual Celebrate Athens Auction and Dinner on Thursday, September 21!


Join us at the Dairy Barn Arts Center as we celebrate what makes the Athens area special while also raising funds for the Chamber to continue our mission to strengthen the Athens area business community. While socializing during cocktail hour and the beginning of dinner, attendees will have the opportunity to bid on one-of-a-kind items and services in the silent auction that will be arranged throughout the Dairy Barn’s spacious gallery. This year, we will continue our “Year of Our Members” focus by bringing to you a wide array of silent and live auction items that illustrate the vibrancy of our member businesses and organizations, like exclusive experiences and unique goods and services.

And expect the meal and refreshments this year to celebrate the culinary diversity of Athens by featuring selections from several of our members, including steak and a baked potato bar provided by Texas Roadhouse. (Check back soon for announcements on which members will be providing appetizers and dessert!)
