This year the proceeds will be focused on the Fish Sculpture, a work of community art which will be placed on the northern lawn site of the Water Plant at the marina. Arthur Baron will auction off services donated by our members; we hope and trust that you will join in. Some ideas: babysitting, pet sitting, birthday cakes, # dozen specific occasion cookies, day trip (Door County, Bonifas Center in Escanaba, Green Bay art venues, etc.), flowers purchased & planted, yardwork, appetizers for 8, dinner for 6, gift certificates for gas, movies, florists, restaurants etc. and the list goes on.
Tickets are $25 for a prime rib buffet. The great news is that the ticket price is the same as last year but we will be making a profit of $6.00 per ticket. Cash bar begins at 6:00 p.m., dinner at 7:00 with violin music from 7:30 - 8:00. You may purchase tickets at the Menominee Angeli's
Gather your special someone (or future special someone), your friends, family and anyone you know who would be interested and enjoy a festive Valentine evening! Thank you for all of your generous efforts in supporting the arts!
