MILTON, January 15, 2018 – James MacDonald, the 2017 World Driving Champion, has been announced as a special guest for the upcoming Milton Sports Celebrity Dinner and Auction.

The Sports Celebrity Dinner & Auction has become one of Milton’s most talked about events, raising the profile of the Milton Chamber of Commerce and the Chamber Scholarship Fund. The Sports Celebrity Dinner & Auction brings together sports heroes and sports enthusiasts alike.
Organized by a volunteer committee of Chamber members, the evening’s program includes an autograph signing session, a cocktail reception, a gourmet meal and a silent and live auction.
Bidding on the live auction items, which in past years has featured golf packages, spa packages, autographed jerseys and sports memorabilia, is one of the highlights of the evening.
