Milford Area Chamber of Commerce Announces Plans for the 28th Annual Auction Spectacular & Gourmet Dinner

The area’s largest community auction event returns for its 28th year as the Milford Area Chamber of Commerce (MACC) prepares for its Annual MACC Auction and Gourmet Dinner. Scheduled for Saturday, November 4 from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. at the Milford Portuguese Club, 119 Prospect Heights in Milford, MA. 

The event includes both live and silent auctions, several chances to win prizes and a gourmet dinner featuring more than 40 area restaurants and eateries. The Annual Auction Spectacular is the MACC’s largest fundraiser, helping to advance the organization’s mission of fostering a positive business climate in the 10-town area it represents.

The MACC Auction Spectacular & Dinner Buffet draws more than 300 attendees each year. There, attendees enjoy a fast-paced evening bidding on items that range from the practical to the exotic. Popular auction items like a Zulu Nyala African Safari, autographed sports memorabilia and tickets to various professional sporting events will be back, as well as several new items. Included in this year’s offerings is a four-day stay at a Sonoma Wine Country winery as well as a five-day Cape Cod escape.

“There is such a huge range of items available to bid on. There’s definitely something for everyone whether you’re bidding on an item for yourself or one that you’ll give as gift,” said MACC president & CEO, Laura O’Callaghan. “It’s fun to watch folks bid against each other when there is an item they want and our auctioneer Dick Ferruci, multi-media account executive at Myfm 101.3, keeps everyone entertained throughout.”

The gourmet dinner buffet is a much anticipated part of the evening, featuring signature dishes from the area’s finest restaurants, eateries and local assisted living communities, along with a cash bar. Offering a spread from passed appetizers to carving stations and delicious entrees to desserts that satisfy any sweet tooth, the dinner buffet is a smorgasbord for every taste.

“Year after year the dinner buffet gets rave reviews! It’s a wonderful showcase of the depth of culinary talent we have in our area and we can’t thank our participating food donors enough,” O’Callaghan said.
