Susan J. North Memorial Auction

There is still time to buy tickets to the Susan J. North Memorial Auction to be held at The Bistro off Broadway on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 7 PM. The event is sponsored by Friends of Susan North; all proceeds will go to the art scholarship fund established in Susan’s name through the HOPE Foundation. Tickets are $30 and include hors d’oeuvres and a glass of wine. A cash bar will be open throughout the evening.

Ted Abney, owner of The Bistro off Broadway, has donated the use of the Bistro for the event and Mike Baker has donated his talents as the auctioneer for the evening. Wieland Jewelers has generously donated a $2,200 diamond that will be raffled off at this event in the “Cupcake Raffle”. Chances to win the diamond are $10 per cupcake or 3 for $25. During this event, all purchased cupcakes will be cut open, the winning cupcake will contain a large, fake gem, to be exchanged for the beautiful diamond! Cupcakes must be pre-ordered and picked up upon arrival.
