The Buffalo Chamber of Commerce held their annual Winter Gathering fundraiser Sunday night at a new venue, the Deerfield Building downtown, and according to Chamber Director Angela Jarvis, it was a great time and a great success.
Jarvis said 175 tickets were sold for the event, and estimated 165 to 170 people attended.
The gourmet four-course meal included an appetizer, salad, main course and of course, a dessert, all accompanied by wines to add to the experience.
Each guest was also treated to a “swag bag” full of goodies for attending.
The grand prize drawing was for a four-day, three-night trip to Hollywood including tickets to Universal Studios.
The lucky winners were Nick and Crystal Smith, who then donated the trip back to the chamber where it went to auction, fetching another $1,300 for the chamber from Mark and Jenny Gordon.
An enjoyable evening, as Jarvis said, was had by those that attended the Winter Gathering in Buffalo.
