A Comedian, A Singer, and an Amusement Park

What do an amusement park, a comedian, and a singer have in common? You guessed it – all are signature events at the silent auction fundraiser. Entertainment items for bid are always a big hit at the Wonderful Witchy Women event. And the ones below will certainly not disappoint.

My childhood is filled with wistful memories of many trips to this land of fantasy and fairy tales. Despite the hordes of visitors, Disneyland will always hold a special place in my heart. Make your own special memories for you and three friends with this fabulous package.Disneyland Page

Your Guide to the 2017 Wonderful Witchy Women Luncheon and Silent Auction

Get ready for a fabulous middle-of-the-day luncheon and silent auction fundraiser! There’s going to be so much activity going on, we thought we would help you by putting together a checklist of things to do when you arrive at the event. You don’t want to miss out on a single thing. In fact, we highly suggest you get there when the doors open at 10:30am so you have plenty of time to check off everything on this list.

CheckboxJust before registration, walk the red carpet and flash those pearly white teeth for a photo at the Step & Repeat banner. Show off that fantastic witchy hat by yourself or with your friends.

CheckboxWhen you register, you will receive your bidding number and, very importantly, a ticket for a complimentary glass of champagne to start off the event right.

As you first enter the Silent Auction area, you will be greeted by the beautiful melodies coming from the grand piano. Lee Allen has been the pianist adding relaxing music to the event for the past few years. [There’s nothing to check off here; just wanted to give him a shout out.]

CheckboxTake your free champagne ticket to the lovely witchy woman surrounded by glasses of champagne waiting to be consumed.

CheckboxFind the nearest Candy Man and purchase a box for $25 ($20/box if you get 2 or more boxes) of rich delectable chocolates from Chocolate Dream Box to receive your ticket(s) to enter the drawing for the sparkly diamond earrings valued at $6,500 sponsored by Joe Escobar Diamonds. These little boxes sell out every year.

CheckboxMake your way to the Kendra Scott table to make your donation of $50 per mystery box to own your newest piece of Kendra Scott jewelry valued at $50 to $200. Only 60 boxes will be available, so don’t wait too long.

CheckboxPeruse and bid on your favorite Silent Auction items. Many are one-of-a-kind that you won’t find anywhere else. Remember, the silent auction closes at 1:00pm sharp!

CheckboxStop by the Centerpieces for sale. These are uniquely designed each year only for the Wonderful Witchy Women silent auction fundraiser. Our Decor committee was hard at work creating these – only 58 available to purchase! They will look amazing on your dining room table or in the foyer.

CheckboxStop by the table where representatives from each of the non-profits we are supporting are seated; learn more about their organization and how they’re helping local women and children in need.

And this is just the beginning…before the program begins. Now it’s time to sit down at your table and enjoy a delicious lunch made with the freshest ingredients and autumnal flavors. And don’t forget – all mobile bidding and silent auction closes promptly at 1:00pm!

Signature Events – Bay and Sky Adventures

Experience the Bay Area in uncommon, unique sorts of ways. These particular adventures aren’t available to just anyone at any time and you can be one of the lucky few.

Feel the thrill of skimming across choppy waves in the San Francisco Bay in the America’s Cup Challenger USA76 – the very sailboat that was used in the 2003 America’s Cup race.

Signature Events – Food, Glorious Food!

OK, so we should probably rename “signature events” to “signature experiences” when it comes to the wine-ing and dining packages our auction committee has assembled. I mean, these items are not your run-of-the-mill dine-at-your-favorite-restaurant kinds of experiences. There’s something extra special about these bid items whether it be the location or the food or the drink or something. All are certain to capture your interest and all I can say is…INDULGE.

How about throwing a dinner party together for 12? And YOU don’t have to do the cooking or serving. And…LOBSTER for dinner? Rombauer Chardonnay? This is an experience certain to impress your friends.

Ever wonder how to make those elegant, artful pieces of sushi? Wonder no longer. Not when you can have a master sushi chef come over to teach you and your friends his techniques and let you in on a few of his secrets and then top it off with a fabulous 5-course dinner!

Of course, there are times when the food is the experience. So uniquely and delectably prepared with the freshest ingredients, the artistry of the chef is what makes this dining experience stand out, in this case, Chef Kinch of Manresa.
