The Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce is celebrating its 100th birthday and gearing up for its annual fundraising banquet and auction, which will include two door prizes in addition to the drawing for an off-road utility vehicle.

This year’s banquet/auction will be on Saturday, Nov. 3, at the Stephens County Ag and Community Center. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m., and dinner will be served at 7 p.m. Tickets to the banquet cost $50 each and include dinner and drinks. The event will be open to anyone, not just Chamber members.

Attendees will have an opportunity to win prizes, enter a raffle and bid on live and silent auction items. The $1,000 door prize will be provided courtesy of Buck Canyon Ranch, First National Bank Albany/Breckenridge, Interbank and J&J Oilfield Electric Co. A second door prize is being provided by local travel agent Chelli Stovall; it will be a four-day/three-night vacation getaway package, which will include a $500 airfare rebate card.

Austin Upchurch will provide the musical entertainment for the banquet. The meal will be catered by the Rusty Rooster and will include: Applewood smoked pork tenderloin with caramelized onions, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, bacon and almond green beans, tossed salad with ranch or honey sunflower dressing, toasted bread with bacon jam and herb cream cheese and pecan praline bread pudding.

In conjunction with the banquet/auction, the Chamber is holding its yearly fundraising drawing for a vehicle. Typically, the organization gives away a pickup truck, but this year, they have downsized the vehicle, as well as the cost of the tickets. The drawing will be for a 2018 Polaris RZR S4 900 EPS off-road utility vehicle purchased from Ken’s Motorcycle Shop in Eastland. Tickets cost $50 each and may be purchased at the Chamber office, First National Bank, Gold Stop Jewelry & Loan, Interbank, Prickly Patch and Ken’s Motorcycle Shop. The Chamber is limiting the number of tickets for the RZR to 750. Tickets will also be available at the banquet, if there are any remaining.

Other upcoming Chamber events include:

  • Second annual Sloan Everett Memorial Bike Ride – Saturday, Oct. 20
  • Community-wide Sidewalk and Garage Sale – Saturday, Oct. 20
  • Meet-and-Greet with the new Executive Director Carrie Holson – Wednesday, Oct. 24
  • Walker Street Trick or Treat – Wednesday, Oct. 31
  • Downtown Mingle & Jingle – Thursday, Nov. 15
