Denim and Diamonds
Warm up from the chill of winter with old and new friends at the Wyoming Foundation’s Denim and Diamonds Fundraiser Feb. 1 at the Glendale Lyceum. This year there are more options than ever to participate and more exciting packages to bid on, plus the good food and music you’ve come to expect at this annual event.
For the first time ever, raffle options are available that give ticket buyers the chance to win packages normally limited only to live bidding. There is also a raffle for a one-of-a-kind necklace created exclusively for the event.
The new raffle offers a chance at valuable auction packages including a dream beach vacation at Long Boat Key, a mountain retreat in Jackson Hole Wyoming and a Reds Hall of Fame Induction package, among many others. For a $100 “Best of Live” ticket, individuals can select one of the packages, says Amy Wolber, co-chair of Denim and Diamonds. Only 50 chances will be sold, so odds of winning are good.
The jewelry raffle features an original necklace designed by Hug Jewelers that features sterling silver charms and turquoise gems for a unique “Wyoming” keepsake. The necklace is valued at $500 and tickets can be purchased for $10 or three for $25.
For both raffles, the winner need not be present.
“These new features give more opportunities for everyone in the community to be part of our event,” says Suzanne Edwards, co-chair. “We are excited to offer these new chances to participate.”
In addition to the raffles, the live bidding this year will include special packages reserved exclusively for the live auction. The first is a special Wrigley Field weekend for two in Chicago that features rooftop seating for a game on Waveland Ave., plus a three-night stay in one of two premium hotels in Chicago, and breakfast each morning. Also included in the special packages is a one-week stay in a luxury vacation home on Lake Cumberland in Kentucky. The property features a five-bedroom, 4.5 bath house that sleeps up to 18 people only three hours from Cincinnati with lovely views of the lake. The final package is a two-day trip to Sonoma, California that includes a two-night stay at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn, winery tours and tastings, plus airfare.
This year the evening will take place at the Glendale Lyceum, a historic club in the village of Glendale that will set the scene for the night. Guests will be treated to dinner by the bite and music by the noted local band, Second Wind, who will perform a wide variety of favorites from famous acts ranging from James Brown to The Beatles.
Tickets are available now for $100. The event takes place on Saturday, Feb. 1. For information, contact the foundation at www.wyomingschoolfoundation.org or by calling 821-6909.
