  • Annual Silent Auction Goes Virtual in 2020

    As many know, our board made the tough decision to cancel the 15th Annual Brooklyn Center Business Association Golf Tournament given concerns about the pandemic. Not only is the golf outing a fun tradition, it is also our primary fundraiser, with a portion of proceeds shared with a fellow area non-profit organization. We're happy to let you know that the silent auction portion of our event will continue this year online.

    For 2020, we plan to share a portion of auction proceeds with CEAP. Due to Covid-19 and high unemployment, many of the local food shelves and organizations that do similar work are particularly challenged by high demand. CEAP mobilizes resources, shares abundance and nourishes neighbors to create and celebrate a healthier, stronger and connected community. In normal times, this is a big task; during a pandemic, it becomes even more critical.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has led CEAP to pivot their strategy and find new, safe ways to do what they do best: provide assistance to our neighbors in an emergency.

    Here’s the scoop:

    • The online silent auction will run from October 22, 23 and 24. Auction items will be available for pick up on Monday, October 26 at the BCBA office. A link to the auction, hosted on 32auctions, will be available at here at www.brooklyncenterbusiness.com and shared via email and Facebook.

    • We currently have around more than dozen items contributed or confirmed to be contributed —that information will be posted on the auction website. Contributors include Top Golf, Hilton Garden Inn Downtown, Bremer Bank, Old National Bank, NAPA Auto, CABI, Silver Dreams Jewelry and Art, O’Reilly Auto and others. Many thanks to our contributors!
