The event features an amazing silent auction, signature hors d’oeuvres, a delicious tapas-style dinner sampler, delightful desserts, and a cash bar. Live music will be provided by The Dam Jam Fiddlers & Company, the ever-popular grassroots ensemble that plays traditional tunes drawn mostly from the musical traditions of Quebec, Ireland, Appalachia, and New England.
The silent auction will feature over 125 silent auction items, including gorgeous jewelry, fabulous pottery, amazing works of fine art, restaurant and area business gift certificates, and fascinating gifts.
