Hope you can join us October 14th for our big fundraiser, the Annual Fish Fry and Auction. You can get tickets here.
Below are just a few of the items we’ll have available in both the live and silent auctions.
Art and Stuff
We are blessed with so many talented artists in our community. From the silly to the serious, we’ll have a nice range of paintings, photography, textile pieces, and lawn art to choose from. Click images below to see more detail on a few examples.
Cocktail Party for 12 at Historic Woodstock Home
Treat yourself and eleven friends to a special evening at this historic log home. Enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the shadow of the mountain near Burnshire Dam.
The property is anchored by a 1797 log home with multiple additions built over the past 14 years. A restored barn has a covered patio where you can relax and look beyond the rolling fields, or take a walk and enjoy several other seating areas—the remains of a by-gone silo or a flagstone patio near the original ice house, now the guest quarters. If the air turns chilly, heaters and a bonfire will warm things up for you and your guests.
Plenty of parking available and designated drivers for guests will be offered within a five mile area.
Barn Quilt, Maureen Crisman
We have several “barn quilt” pieces this year. These are generally about 3′ x 3′ painted on plywood and finished with varnish so you can hang them outside if you’d like. We love the exquisite detail on this mix of geometric shapes and natural images.
DC Night on the Town!
Treat yourself and your spouse or loved one to a wonderful night out! The package includes a $200 Gift Certificate for dinner at any Clyde’s restaurant plus two tickets to this Golden Age comedy at Arena Stage, in Washington, DC. Packed with seductive dance numbers like “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway”, these tickets (and a romantic dinner for two) will make a wonderful holiday surprise for a loved one, or a terrific early Xmas gift for a friend or family member.
3-Course Spanish Dinner for 6
Three talented hostesses will prepare a three-course Spanish meal for you and five guests in your home, at a home in Woodstock, or at some other location of your choice. The meal will include wine or sangria, tapas (appetizers) such manchego cheese, tortilla espanola or gazpacho, a main course such as roast chicken, steak, or fish, and a dessert such as flan con nata (crème caramel with whipped cream). The winning bidder will arrange a mutually agreeable date and menu with the donors. Expires October 14, 2018.
