The various city departments of Chillicothe have come together to help raise money for the United Way's 2018 fundraising campaign.
They've put together holiday gift baskets with a full range of different themes and items that community members can bid on. Area residents can view each basket in the front window of the City Administration Building. They'll be on display December 15th until Wednesday, December 20th with the bidding period ending at 4:00 p.m. that same day. Once the highest bid for each basket has been selected, each of the winning bidders will be notified.
The basket themes include: Movie Night, Hometown Pride, Misfit Toys, and The Hunt for the Perfect Christmas Gift. The largest of the baskets is the "Chillicothe Experience" basket, which includes VIP Tickets to Tecumseh, Admission to a Paints Game, Majestic Theatre Admissions, and more.
To make a bid on a basket, there is a clip board next to the display at the administration building that people can use to write their bids down. This is only available during regular business hours Monday through Friday. Bids can also be made by calling the Chillicothe Administration Building at 740-773-2191.
All proceed from the bids will go the Ross County United Way.
