On November 16, 2012, the “Hollywood Red Carpet” was brought to the Publick House Historical Inn in Sturbridge, MA for the Center’s Talents and Treasures Charity Auction. Our guests were certainly “rubbing elbows” with the who’s who as our guest list kept soaring higher and higher! A grateful thank you to the staff of the Publick House for finding a way to make the proper accommodations. A tip of the hat goes out to Dave “Peterman” Peterson from Smith & Jones Idea Agency, who did an incredible job interviewing our guests and Event Sponsors. The paparazzi had nothing on Les Gardner’s Photography, who generously volunteered his time and talents by photographing this wonderful event. Check out the pictures here! Type in Talents and Treasures, Password: Auction. Who knew that the violin could be played so eloquently behind one’s head when the Worcester Sharks “Finz” challenged Hunter Foote, our event musician, to step up his game? Bravo Hunter! Jared Vigneault and Jennifer Grammatic from Poise, Style and Motion Ballroom Studio, turned up the heat for our guests on this chilly night with four dance presentations. And… Bob Fowler and Michael Fors from Pioneer Auction Company didn’t miss a beat as many battled it out to win the coveted prize. So if you happened to miss this event this year… DON”T WORRY! It will sure to be back.
The Talents and Treasures Charity Auction raises funds for the Holiday Giving Tree Program, which provides gifts to families with children who have a disability and are affiliated with the Center of Hope Foundation. Thank you to all of our volunteers and sponsors for being a star in these families eyes during this holiday season.
