EAST HARTFORD - Join in celebrating Harvest Adventures, the 24th Annual East Hartford Chamber of Commerce (EHCC) Auction. This year's theme of Harvest Adventures will offer Chamber members and friends' new and exciting adventures. The Chamber annual gala offers great food, good fun and incredible auction items that support the Chamber's mission in promoting the economic and community vitality of East Hartford. By working with businesses, town officials and local community groups, the Chamber benefits the entire town of East Hartford. As a partner in the auction, a portion of this year's proceeds will go to Junior Achievement of Southwest New England. Junior Achievement creates programs for young people, kindergarten through grade 12, centered around work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial-literacy skills. In 2102, more than 2,000 talented volunteers donated one of the most important things they have to offer - their time. Thanks to the dedication of business professionals, parents, retirees and college students, more than 34,500 students received Junior Achievement programs in 2012. More than 1,500 of last year’s students attended East Hartford schools. To date, this year’s Harvest sponsors are Pratt and Whitney and Stone Academy. Pumpkin sponsor is American Eagle Federal Credit Union. The Chamber welcomes additional sponsors and auction donations. General admission tickets are $45 per person or $225 for a table of six. The auction will be held on Friday, Nov. 15, from 6 to 11 p.m. at the Holiday Inn, Hartford East, located at 100 East River Drive, East Hartford.
