A Great Event for a Great Cause – HSMAI hosts a superb Chinese Auction!

If you have never been to a Chinese Auction, here is what they are about: Each attendee receives a list of donated auction items and a numbered stick. Quarters can be purchased by each attendee to bid on items which range from $.50 to $1.50. The auctioneer will ask each attendee to place their quarter in a bucket located in the middle of each table, if they would like to bid on the item. If the attendee bids on the item, they hold their numbered stick in the air. The auctioneer will begin at random, calling out the numbers of the people who bid. Meanwhile, a gonger is on the stage and is unaware of what numbers are being called. Whenever the gonger likes, he bangs the gong. The last number called by the auctioneer wins the item. This continues until all the prizes are won.

Lethal Rhythms is definitely looking forward to the next Chinese Auction!

The Georgia Chapter of HSMAI (Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International) hosts monthly meetings at various Atlanta venues. Meetings are generally held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 11:00AM – 1:30PM.
