Benefit Auction

HAMPSTEAD — Travel is still a theme for this year’s Friends of the Hampstead Public Library Auction. A spectacular recent donation from Omni Hotels and Resorts offers two separate certificates for a one-night stay at an Omni Hotel. Each certificate has a value of approximately $500.00. Check online to see where Omni has hotels and plan your trip to use the winning bid for one of these certificates. You might be able to use this in conjunction with either the Napa Valley tour or the New Orleans trip that will also be up for bidding on Fri., November 15.

Beyond Vanilla Ice Cream Parlor in Hampstead has donated three delicious opportunities for your bidding pleasure. First is a quart of ice cream for each of five months. If you have a party coming up you might want to bid on the private dessert tasting for up to twenty people that includes a sampling of five desserts with coffee or other drinks and live music. Finally they have donated a half price party package for up to twelve people. Surely one of these very special donations will tempt you to bid.

If you prefer tea to ice cream, the Cozy Tea Cart has donated a tea tasting party for six people. There are also have many donations for other nice things to eat. Many of these will be surprise gifts in the balloon pop where you buy a balloon for only $10.00 and win a gift that is valued at a minimum of $15.00. You can’t lose on a balloon!

The fun begins on Fri., November 15, 5:30 p.m., at the Granite Rose in Hampstead. Get your tickets in advance because none will be sold at the door. The sit-down dinner will be followed by the balloon pop. Raffle tickets will be available throughout the evening as will bidding on the items in the silent auction. You’ll be able to pay by check, Visa or MasterCard or – our favorite – cold, hard cash. The free photo booth will also be ready to take your picture all evening long. Patty and Steve Falconer are returning as auctioneers for the live auction part of the festivities. Beautiful baskets are being set up and wrapped already to supplement those donated by our generous supporters. And those two outstanding trips to Napa or New Orleans will also be part of the live auction.

Tickets are still available at the front desk of the library or at the Hampstead branch of TD Bank. They are only $35.00 for an evening of fun and fabulous buys.
