VAN WERT — First Federal Savings & Loan and Slusher’s Jewelry of Van Wert will be co-hosting A Toast to the YWCA and Silent Tree Auction on Nov. 22.
Join us for a grand evening of wine and beer tasting in the impressive atmosphere of Willow Bend. Enjoy a night on the town while learning about a variety of fine wines and premium beers in true holiday spirit. The evening will be complete with hors d’oeuvres, a chocolate fountain and surprise raffles. There will be a cash bar before the event.
The evening festivities include the Silent Tree Auction. Numerous businesses and individuals throughout the area decorate trees and wreaths and donate the items for silent bidding. There is a tree or wreath for everyone at this event! Auction items include a variety of price points and range from wreaths and small table top trees to 7-foot-tall holiday greens. You will see everything from traditional, holiday fashion, peacock, rustic and sports decorations! Even if you don’t need a tree, this event is still for you. In the true spirit of the holiday season, winning bidders are given the option of donating the beautifully decorated item to a less fortunate family in our community.
Tickets are $35 and on sale now at the YWCA. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the event begins at 7 p.m. Seating is reserved. All proceeds from the event go to support the YWCA Transitional Living Program for homeless women and families and Domestic Violence Services. Seating is limited. Call the YWCA today to register.
