  • 2019 Christmas Gala - A Picture Perfert Christmas

     The Annual Chamber of Hickory Nut Gorge Christmas Gala Fundraiser was held Thursday, December 5 at the Lake Lure Inn.  This is one of the rare "dress up" moments we love to host. 

    Revenue records were the highest in the 25+ year history.  We netted over $23,000.00, 200 attendee tickets sold, auction items were 100% donated and netted over $9,000.  One of the "live" auction items (private dinner party for 12), raised over $1,000.00. 

    We could not have done this without our sponsors - Point Lookout Vineyard, US Foods, Lifestyle Properties, Beverly-Hanks Realtors, Chimney Rock State Park, Northland Cable, Carolina Trust Bank, DK Professionals Realty & Mountain Brook Vineyards.  As well as the 66 donated auction items, our loyal attendees and the Gala Committee of volunteers working so hard to pull this all together.
