Descriptionof our events:
· Friday night May 2, 2014, is a “come as you are” jeans-casual kind of evening where just $15 at the door includes your dinner (two kinds of pasta, salad, breads, and desserts) and bid number, so you can get in on all of the exciting silent and live-bidding.
· Saturday night May 3, 2014, is the PERFECT excuse to bust out that fancy cocktail attire you’ve been waiting all winter to wear! This evening is by reservation, with a full “sit-down” meal, wine and beer. This evening has amazing silent and live items to bid on (trips, catered dinners, mind-blowing baskets, 5th Avenue season tickets and more!) Tables are forming now, so gather your friends and family and make your reservation for the social event of the year! Make your reservation by phone; call Diana at 253-845-5025.
