the next great event, llc

2020 and 2021 have brought us together as an industry more than ever before. We've been there for each other over the phone, and through Zoom meetings, social media groups and webinars ... now it's finally time to celebrate in person. We invite you to join us at the award-winning Chinese Auction Fundraiser and Dinner. This year we are celebrating our 38th annual event and the "Year of the Ox."

This year, proceeds from the event will directly benefit the Arizona Chapter of HSMAI to support our association's mission and our continuing efforts to provide quality continuing education and scholarships for those professionals currently in the hospitality industry and those who are pursuing a career in the field. Now, more than ever, we need to be able to deliver these important benefits to our members, and we can't do that without the income we would have actualized from this year's meetings and fundraising events.

THE CONCEPT OF THE AUCTION

The Chinese Auction was conceived in 1982 by the Arizona Chapter of the Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International. This event has gained national recognition and has been adopted by numerous HSMAI and MPI chapters through the U.S. as their major fundraiser.

The auction was originally given the Chinese theme due to the location of the event - the former China Doll Restaurant in Phoenix. Over the years, the auction has grown in size and has moved its location to larger venues. The Chinese theme has remained.

The idea of the auction is to provide each guest with a list of prizes (such as dinners, golf outings, gift baskets, services, and hotel/resort stays) and a numbered stick. Each table is supplied with a bucket that is placed in the middle. Starting with the number one item, the auctioneer describes that item and asks the guests who are interested in bidding on this item to toss a quarter or quarters in the bucket. The guest then holds their stick in the air. The auctioneer calls out the numbers that are held up. A gonger (who cannot see or hear what is going on) is responsible for hitting the gong after a few seconds. The last number called out when the gong rings has won that prize and goes to the stage to claim it. This sequence of events goes on throughout the evening until all prizes are gone. Over the years, a silent and live auction have also been added to the event.

This event has won numerous awards including "Stars of the Industry" Awards from the Arizona Lodging & Tourism Association, "Awards of Excellence in Association Management" from the Arizona Society of Association Executives and several HSMAI International Awards.

Come ready to have a great time.
This is the perfect event to bring family members, friends and co-workers too.
