The Sarpy County Chamber of Commerce is preparing for its annual Grand Giveaway fundraiser.

The event will be on March 13 at the Embassy Suites, 12520 Westport Parkway in La Vista.

A silent auction and social hour will begin at 5 p.m. with dinner and an oral auction following, said Karen Gibler, the chamber’s interim president.

Registration must be done in advance. The chamber offers sponsorship levels that include attendance tickets.

A single dinner and attendance ticket will cost $75. Those who wish to attend can register at up to one week before the event.

The auction will feature a variety of items including season tickets to area sporting events, sports memorabilia, gift cards and wine baskets.

“There is something for everyone,” Gibler said.

The event’s committee is still planning details regarding entertainment, Gibler said.

This year’s theme, “Sarpy & Beyond,” is a reflection of the county’s growth in recent years.

“We are seeing a large increase of visitors and clients from surrounding areas,” Gibler said. “We strive to provide great local services and reach beyond Sarpy County.”
