Bidding Now Open for BACC Silent Auction Fundraiser!

Bidding is Now Open for our 2021 Conquer Awards Silent Auction! This important BACC fundraiser supports our Lauren Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund and programming for small business and Main Street retailers that results in money spent here in the Barrington area!

Each year BACC awards thousands of dollars in scholarship monies to local students. Throughout the years we have awarded nearly $80,000 in scholarships to local high school students. Students from Barrington High School qualify, as well as Chamber members’ students attending any school. Awards are given to students who will attend a university, community college, technical trade school, or certification program; as careers are built in many ways. To down load a scholarship application form CLICK HERE.

Our BACC Conquer Awards programming on Thursday, January 28 will feature cameo appearances from some of our former BACC Scholarship recipients. Our Silent Auction will close on January 28 at 8:00 pm after the Conquer Awards program…
