The Chamber’s vision is to be the primary resource and support of area economic development and quality of life. Spring-Klein Chamber of Commerce’s (SKCC) annual fundraiser, The Gala Dinner and Auction, helps make that vision a reality.

The Christmas in July Gala is the premier social event of the season in Spring-Klein and is a festive evening of philanthropy, fine food, and fun, and a celebration of SKCC’s commitment to excellence and community. Imagine!–a gala dinner and auction–is SKCC’s largest fundraiser. It is always a sell-out.

Rejoice with us and take pleasure in a sumptuous evening basking in the festively adorned Shady Oaks, feasting on a sumptuous buffet featuring traditional Christmas Carvery, dancing to the live music from Braid. Enjoy the witty, yet encouraging words of Commissioner Jerry Eversole, and be a part of history as we recognize Spring-Klein’s first Business of the Year with the presentation of the “TONI” Award.


Businesses and individuals donate generously to the live auction hosted by the funny and charming Mark Moore, TAL#15019 offering an array of special experiences- trips, dinners, and unique events and items. On auction night, 150 attendees—dressed to the nines—engage in friendly competitive bidding. The event is conceived and run by an extraordinary cadre of volunteers whose dedicated support for the Chamber’s business, education programs infuses the evening with a wonderful spirit of philanthropy and community.

Mark your calendar for July 24. Host a table, bring your friends, and get your seats early!
