Legacy of Caring Gala celebrates giving
The Big Canoe Chapel Women’s Guild’s Legacy of Caring Gala and Auction: A Celebration of Giving, is scheduled for Saturday, May 4 from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m. The public is invited to enjoy an evening of fine dining, music and silent and live auctions with family and friends at The Clubhouse at Lake Sconti. Tickets for the event are $100 per person and are available at www.bigcanoelegacy.org, at the Chapel Stand-Around or contact Sandra Gadd (706-579-2443).
The Legacy of Caring Gala and Auction: A Celebration of Giving includes a gourmet dinner with wine and auctions. Entertainment for the evening will be provided by the Nashville-based trio, MAMADEAR, performing country, folk and Americana music. Hector Rosano and Gerard Monte, newcomers to The Clubhouse at Lake Sconti, are planning a four-course gourmet feast served at stations with wines generously donated by Syl and Gordon Harnesberger and Sandy and Jeff Downing.
Auctions items—both live and silent—are some of the best ever. More than 170 items are set for the silent auction. Baskets of food and wine abound. Meals prepared in the home by chefs and gift certificates to dine at favorite restaurants are offered. Then there are the mink cape and jacket, art work, and crafters. The live auction includes a week at the Siesta Key Florida villa of Sandy and Jeff Downing, a full-length mink coat and a Braves Package including a gift certificate for your choice of lunch or dinner and 4 club-level seats. Tom’s Awesome Seafood is providing a low country boil for 12 with music by Sock Monkey and a traditional corn hole game, and Hector and Gerard are offering a four course Tuscan gourmet dinner for 10 prepared at your home. For the first time ever, courtesy of Elaine and Allan DeNiro, a shy-acre lot in Big Canoe (92 Fire Pink Lane) is up for auction.
