March 11, 2004 – Tickets are still available for the 18th annual Pine Peace School Dinner Auction, which will take place on Saturday in the grand ballroom of the Westin Resort.
The theme is "Kaleidoscope: Seeing Beauty in Every Child."
The evening will begin at 5:30 p.m. when bidding will open for the silent auction. Dinner and the live auction to be conducted by George Blackhall will follow at 7 p.m.
On the dinner menu are buffalo mozzarella and tomato salad, seared chicken with prawns, and tiramisu for dessert.
"It's going to be a really fabulous event," committee member Lori Barlas said, adding that there's a long list of auction items.
Among them is an all-day cooking seminar with Ted Robinson, an owner of Tage Restaurant on St. John, that will include dinner for four at the end.
Also up for bids is a seven-day stay at a luxury villa in the Umbria section of Italy that includes dinner with the owners, car rental and a tour of the winner's choice.
Other offerings include a week's stay at a Westin Resort in Rome, four nights at W Hotel in New York, sailing trips, a fishing expedition at the Rapid River Lodge in Canada, meals at local restaurants and stays at local hotels. Also to be auctioned off are bottles of champagne and quilts made by Pine Peace students.
Among the silent auction items are works by local artists and artisans.
Tickets to the event are $100. The money raised will go to fund scholarships and activities at Pine Peace School. Tickets are available at St. John Hardware and by calling the school at 776-6595. They also will be available Saturday at the door.
