Here’s a big event we’re excited to tell you about:
“Just Imagine” Tickets are now on sale for the San Juan Community Theater 2012 Holiday Festival.
With a lineup that includes the Northwest’s most charismatic auctioneer, mouth-watering culinary creations, dancing to one of the island’s best, and live musical treats throughout, San Juan Community Theatre’s biggest fundraiser of the year will warm up winter more than ever.
The 2012 Holiday Festival: Just Imagine starts off the holidays with a multitude of entertainment on Saturday, December 1 at 5 p.m.
“While the Festival’s mission is a very important one—being the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Theatre—it is also all about the FUN in fundraising and a great way for the community to celebrate the holidays together,” said Board of Trustees president Pat Nieman.
The evening features the return of veteran showman and auctioneer John Curley, who has befriended island audiences since his Festival debut two years ago. Curley, who currently hosts Seattle’s Morning News on KIRO-FM and has been an auctioneer for several years, helping to raise millions of dollars for Northwest nonprofits and schools. Curley will host the live auction portion of the evening, which features a variety of fine art, exotic dinners and great escapes (including stays in Maui, Sun Valley and Italy).
The evening’s silent auction takes place in both the Gubelman and Whittier Theatres while guests enjoy fine wine and gourmet appetizers. Roche Harbor Resort’s Bill Shaw and staff will also present live cooking supper stations after the auctions. (A complete catalog of the auction items is available on-line at www.sjctheatre.org).
Live entertainment during the evening includes a new stage performance from island talents Jill and Andy Urbach and The Lisa Duke Dancers; as well as dancing with The Chameleons and music from Susan Williams and Keith Busha and vibes player Hawk Arps of Lopez.
Holiday Festival Tickets ($85 per person) are available by calling Chance Earle at 378‑3211, ext. 32.
