Skills Auction + Kids Party

May 6 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Good fun, good food, and a good cause! Our annual fundraising and friend-raising Skills Auction returns after a three-year Covid hiatus. This year’s theme is “A Shakespearean Auction Reboot,” and costumes are encouraged.  Doors open at 5:30 pm for sign-ups; auction starts at 6:30 pm. Open to members and their invited guests.

Kids Party, Too: We are offering a kids party for any families who want to attend the auction. The kids will have fun in the basement, where we will make animal masks and have a parade during the Skills Auction intermission. 
At this Shakespeare-themed auction, the main inspiration for the mask-making will be Shakespeare’s play “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” in which a hapless would-be actor is given the head of a donkey by a mischievous fairy named Puck.  The children will make their own animal masks and pretend that Puck has transformed them, too!
The kids party, organized by Anne Wallman, will start at 5:30pm so that the younger ones can be ready to go home early after the parade.  The party will continue after the parade for those who can stay later. Please RSVP for the party to Anne at 917-301-7363 or [email protected]. ALL DETAILS AND PRINTABLE FLIER.
