Over 100 spectacular items at Silent Auction
Be sure to stop by the lobby of Wells Fargo downtown during the week of November 15, 2010 to view and bid on incredible decorated trees, wreaths, centerpieces, and gift baskets. Altrusa's annual Holiday Festival & Gifts event culminates with a festive party on Friday, November 19 from 6:15 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. at the bank. A donation of $10 at the door admits each adult (must be over 21) to a fun evening of food, beer from Horsefly Brewery, wine from Corks Fine Wines & Spirits, non-alcoholic beverages, and the excitement of the final night of the silent auction.
The trees come in a wide range of themes, including traditional, Harley Davidson, John Deere, Western, Wines, 2 Nights of Christmas, Frosty the Snowman, and much more, with colors and designs to suit a wide variety of decors. Some have matching wreaths and/or centerpieces. And the centerpieces are just as varied as the trees -- some with a Christmas theme, others suitable for many occasions.
Need a special gift? Over 25 gift baskets were donated by Altrusa members and local businesses, such as Ray's Good Stuff (the jerky store), Merle Norman Cosmetics, Great Harvest Bakery, and Colorado Boy Brewery. There are great gifts for a baby shower, birthdays, anniversaries, and, of course, Christmas. The truth is, many of the gift baskets are so appealing that people bid on them to keep for themselves!
We hope you'll join us at the party Friday evening, or at least stop in to the bank during the week to bid on some of these marvelous items. Remember: all proceeds go to our local Altrusa Foundation -- a 501(c)3 non-profit -- to support the many projects, scholarships, and local grants described on this website.
