Get your tickets now for Pierce/Weippe Chamber Auction

By Charlene Douglas

   Circle Saturday, May 1 on your calendar and get your tickets now for the annual Pierce/Weippe Chamber auction and banquet starting at 6 p.m. at the Weippe Community Center.

   The evening will begin with time to socialize while playing the games of chance, winning and throwing tickets into our new Bucket Drawings and visiting our cash beer and wine station. Following play time, you can choose between a mouth-watering chicken dinner or perfectly prepared prime rib dinner catered by the Rebekah Lodge.

   While playing the games and eating dinner, you will have an opportunity to view and bid on numerous superb items in our silent auction. Then we’ll move into the “do you feel lucky” part of the evening with our live auction. Will Godfrey from Lewiston will serve as our very talented auctioneer this year.

   But, the fun doesn’t end there. After the live auction, we’ll draw the winning name in our rifle raffle. This year we have a Savage II6FXP3, long barrel, 300 win mag, bolt action with scope and strap. Tickets are limited and only cost $10 (same price as last two years – inflation has not hit here). Plus, this year, we’ll be introducing a very special drawing that you’ll have to see to believe!


   Dinner tickets are $15/adults and $8/children ages 6-12. Children under age six eat free. Various ticket packages that combine dinner, rifle drawing tickets and bucket drawing tickets are available.

   Tickets can be purchased from any Chamber member, or pick one up at any of the following locations: in Orofino, Clearwater Tribune; in Pierce, Studio 205, A Blue Moose, Pierce Hardware, The Outback, S&S Foods, Olive’s Auto Parts; and in Weippe, Mary Ann’s Groceries or the Weippe Discovery Center. You may also obtain tickets by calling Joe and Charlene Douglas at 208-476-7405 or 208-476-5708.

   Want to relax after tax season? Want to try your luck at games of chance? Want to have a chance at winning the international competition Gold Medal winning rifle with scope and strap? Want a great meal on top of all that? And, just for attending, do you want a chance at winning some fantastic door prizes?

   Then get your dinner and rifle drawing tickets early – they are going fast!
