Chamber fund-raiser slotted for this Friday


West Knox County residents will have an opportunity to do some time traveling Friday, May 4, when the Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce hosts its annual dinner and auction at Rothchild’s Catering with a theme set to the Roaring ’20s.

Emily Cox, chair for the event, said a silent auction would begin at 6 p.m. and end at 7:45 p.m. Dinner is slated to begin at 8 p.m. A live auction follows with William “Bear” Stephenson of Stephenson Realty & Auction serving as auctioneer.

“It’s going to be a great night,” Cox said. “The theme this year is the roaring twenties in honor of the Farragut West

Knox Chamber of Commerce twentieth

anniversary.”

Cox said guests can expect to feel they are back in the 1920s. There will be flappers and lots of color.

“It’ll be a lot like Chicago gangsters and jazz age type things,” she said. “Think of ‘The Great Gatsby’ and that whole type of feel.”

Sponsors purchase tables for their staff members and the tables are adorned with decorative center pieces specific to the overall theme of the evening.

“People were really creative with the center-pieces last year,” Cox said. “This year should be even better.

“We have more than a hundred items that area businesses have donated for the silent auction.”

Auction items include a dinner for 10 at Bonefish Grill, a meal in your home from Earth Fare, advertising packages from farragutpress, two University of Tennessee skybox football tickets from Horne Properties, dinner for four with Knox County Mayor Mike Ragsdale, four Michelin tires from Matlock Tire Service and a host of other items.
