The Danberry Treasure Chest to Hold 17th Annual Charity Dinner Auction
On October 13, 2011 the Danberry Treasure Chest will hold its 17th annual charity dinner auction at Hilton Garden Inn at Levis Commons. The event begins with a cocktail hour and silent auction at 6:00pm, dinner at 7:00pm and a live auction at 8:30pm. It is open to the public with an advanced reservation. Melissa Voetsch of Channel 11 News will be the event’s MC, with Jack Amlin serving as the auctioneer for the live auction. In addition to the live auction there will be hundreds of silent auction items.
In addition to raising funds for the Danberry Treasure Chest, an emergency assistance fund to help families with chronically ill children at Toledo Children’s Hospital who are struggling financially, funds are also being raised for the Great Lakes Collaborative for Autism and the Y-JCC’s Kids in Motion Program, a program to prevent childhood obesity.
“Many similar events have a ticket price in excess of $200 making our $75 ticket cost a great value,” commented Dick Baker, Danberry’s President. “We have heard from past attendees that they are very pleased with the variety and affordability of our silent auction items,” added Lynn Fruth, Danberry’s CEO.
