Auction and Dinner

Saturday, June 4th from 5:30-8:30 pm at St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church

Our “not to be missed” event is combining good food, fellowship, and the opportunity to bid on unusual and creative silent & live auction items. Proceeds go directly to the St. Bart’s operating fund.  Tom and Laurie Hyndman will be our talent auctioneers, and we want YOU to participate in the fun!  Here’s what you can do:

There is a $15 per person, $25 per couple or $30 per family charge at the door.
