UPDATE: Thank you all for participating so generously in our benefit auction! We brought in a big crowd, had an outstanding time, and - most importantly - raised a huge sum for the Center.
Join us on Saturday evening, March 8th at 8:00 pm, when the Grand Ballroom will be transformed into the site for the EMJC 2008 Auction Extravaganza and Passover Wine Sale.
Over the past several weeks Center members, friends and local area merchants have generously donated a variety of goods and services for the auction, with all proceeds going into the EMJC Building Fund. Artwork, appliances, theater tickets, baseball tickets, home-cooked dinners, barbeques, week-end getaways, legal and other professional services are among the many items “on the block” that evening.
The auction will take three forms. A handful of items will be raffle prizes, others will be awarded in a silent auction, and still others will test the mettle of our two skilled auctioneers, Irwin Weintraub and Michael Marcus.
It promises to be a fast, furious, and fun-filled evening. But to be a success the most important element will be your enthusiastic – and generous – participation. Come to the Auction Extravaganza on March 8th, and don’t forget to bring your friends, relatives, and neighbors.
The Auction Extravaganza is coupled with this year’s Passover Wine Sale. An outstanding selection of kosher-for-Passover wines will be available for you to purchase and get a start on setting your holiday table.
Set aside the evening of March 8th for the Auction Extravaganza and Passover Wine Sale, and come ready to bid to better the East Midwood Jewish Center.
