Excitement is building for the annual premier fundraising event for the Lakes Crisis and Resource Center in Detroit Lakes.
Friday the 13th should prove lucky for the non-profit, as the general public is invited to the Speak Easy for dinner, entertainment, awards, and both silent and live auctions, beginning at 6 p.m.
Kathy Coyle and Beth Pridday are co-chairing a team of volunteers who have assembled a long list of donated items, bound to appeal to a wide variety of people.
Bidding should be intense for four (sold-out) VIP tickets to WE Fest that includes camping and parking.
Adventure enthusiasts will be attracted to a 2007 Polaris Sportsman 4-wheeler from Okeson's OffTrail Sales.
For Subaru owners there is a top-of-the-line car starter and local maintenance, and for snowmobilers, his and hers Gortex jackets.
Art lovers will be impressed by the talents of copper metal sculptor, Patrick Shannon and unique jewelry from his Forest Edge Gallery partner, Helena Johnson.
Tired of the lingering winter weather? The owners of Cabo Village Resort have donated seven nights for up to four people at one of their ocean side villas in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Coyle says volunteers and staff have also collected recreational packages that include golf at a variety of courses, bowling, skiing, musicals, trips to zoos, restaurants, casinos, and hotel accommodations.
Relaxation packages offer limo rides, beauty treatments, and garden items.
Tickets to the Twins game of their choice or a guest appearance on television will add zest to the winning bidders' lives.
Sharon Sinclair and Cathy Fritz will host a garden party for the best price and A.J. Klemm is donating Lia Sophia jewelry to the cause.
Larry Kroshus, known as the black tie auctioneer, will orchestrate the bidding while "Mr. Jack," John Hutchinson, will provide musical entertainment.
Last year over 2,000 area people were assisted by the crisis center professional staff and volunteers.
Executive Director Jan Logan says, "This event is a time to celebrate and honor the many volunteers in our community who assist in keeping our doors open. Proceeds will provide additional resources for families served by the Lakes Crisis and Resource Center."
Tickets are available at Solutions, LLC in the Washington Square Mall, Ambience Salon in Frazee, or by contacting the Lakes Crisis & Resource Center, 847-8572.
