St. Vincent de Paul “Lights the Way”
April 21, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
On Friday, April 21, St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) will host its annual Silent Auction and Cocktail Party Fundraiser at the Oxford Community Center, starting at 6:30 p.m. Volunteers light up with smiles as they proudly serve fabulous hors d’oeuvres and amazing homemade desserts throughout the evening. Cash bars will also be open throughout the night.
While enjoying the company of friends in the community, sign up to win incredible auction items such as weekend retreats, weeklong getaways, jewelry, golf outings, unique gift baskets and many more surprise packages. Generous area restaurants have also donated dinners, lunches, teas and cooking classes. A special children’s section will have sailing, karate and children’s play camps.
The ever popular “International Dinners” are always a fast sell-out, as bidders hover to sign up for an opportunity to visit local friends and neighbors who open their homes and hearts to those lucky enough to win a seat at their tables. A Secret Wine Wall will have exceptional pricey wines for a low price.
Raffles will be held throughout the evening for incredible items such as a backyard crab feast, or a dozen bottles of wine valued at $520. Buy a 50/50 ticket for a chance to win cash.
Alex Handy, president of St. Vincent de Paul said he is forever grateful for the generosity of so many merchants, restaurateurs and folks in the community who give so much to Light the Way for those in need. “Everything for the evening is donated, and 100% of the proceeds from the evening’s festivities go to SVdP.”
SVdP is an international faith-based charity that provides food, clothing and household goods to those in need in Talbot County. Assistance with utilities, rent, prescriptions and shelter are also provided when necessary. Tickets can be purchased online at www.svdpeaston.org or at the SVdP Center at 29533 Canvasback Drive in Easton on Tuesdays from 1 to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.
