It is that time of year again, time for the annual Piccadilly Ladies Night Out Auction & Gala.

Planning is already underway for the event and tickets will go on sale at 5:30 p.m., on Thursday, Jan. 30, at Celebrations Event Hall (located at the south end of The Fast

Lane Entertainment Center).

“We have some wonderful and exciting things in store for our eleventh annual event that will be held Thursday, March 12, 2020,” Crystal Narr, executive director of the Chillicothe Area Chamber of Commerce said. “We are returning to Bishop Hogan this year and the committee is working hard to make the 2020 Piccadilly another huge success.”

In a press release, Pam Jarding of Main Street Chillicothe said, “Information about event sponsorship opportunities has been made available through both Main Street and the Chamber.” Anyone interested in sponsorship opportunities should contact the Chamber or Main Street.

According to the press release, the Piccadilly Gala and Auction includes an elegant meal, wonderful atmosphere and the live Piccadilly Auction, which is played by bidding with quarters on items donated by local and regional businesses. Funds raised at the Piccadilly will be used to fund the events and programs that Main Street and the Chamber sponsor throughout the year.

Main Street Chillicothe encourages downtown revitalization through economic development and hosts downtown events such as the mural program, BooFest, and other seasonal events. The

Chillicothe Area Chamber of Commerce promotes the business community and sponsors family and community events such as the Chautauqua in the Park and the Holiday Parade that help showcase the community and bring people to Chillicothe.

“We hope you will gather your girlfriends and join us for Piccadilly Gala 2020: Wine Country this year at the Bishop Hogan,” Narr said. Tickets are $40 each or $320 for a table of eight women. The tickets must be purchased in person at the ticket sales event on Jan. 30 or at the Commerce Center beginning Jan. 31 with cash, check or credit card. No early or phone sales will be taken. Must be 18 to attend. Call 660-646-4050 or 660-646-4071 for more information.
