Auction this Wednesday!!!

26 Nov

I just got home from the latest (and final for 2012) meeting with the Spirited Bostonians, and WOW, we are just about ready for this Wednesday’s Rattlin’ Around the Christmas Tree event! Thanks to the ladies over at Panera for the bagels, BTW. I don’t know if I would have gotten home without them!
Tonight we finished packaging items up and deciding which ones would be in the Silent Auction, which begins at 5:30pm, and which ones would be in the Live Auction, which starts at 8:00pm. I can say that we are VERY excited about the packages and items we have to offer — our Donors have been so generous! We have overnight stays in Boston, Portsmouth, NH, Mexico, and Vermont. We have tickets to the Red Sox, Celtics, Boston College Hockey, The Grinch, The Nutcracker, and The Pops! We have packages with Beer, Wine, Tea, Chocolate and local Booze. We have gift certificates to restaurants in and around Greater Boston, including The Parish Cafe, the Rattlesnake, the Capital Grille, Summer Shack, Estelle, John Brewer’s, Top of the Hub, the Quarterdeck, and Blue on Highland. We have our great Chefs at the Rattlesnake cooking for you both at the event and in a couple of auction packages. We have our artisans and fashion designers donating their beautiful work and time. We have dancing lessons, sports memorabilia, golf, bowling, and it just keeps going!
We’ve done our best to try to match up dinners, events and overnights so that you can see these items as “date nite” or a nice gift for the holidays, so start thinking about who you want to take to an all-inclusive resort in Baja, Mexico, or to a Vermont B&B, or bowling in the city!
We’re excited to have Jim Wells emceeing our event and chairing the live auction once again. Dawn Mostow will have her lovely models helping out with the evening, and the Rollo Tomasi Quartet will be setting the scene with live music. Of course, the Rattlesnake staff will be helping out behind the bar and Chefs Brian Poe and Shawn Russell will be cooking up a delicious fare for all our guests.
The weather will cooperate! But even if it doesn’t, the weather inside the bar will be lovely, so get your tickets and make a plan to meet friends down at the Rattlesnake Bar and Grill this Wednesday, the 28th! Doors open at 5:30pm. Till then…
