Ah Haa Auction Friday: License to Create

I’ll never forget the year that my friend tugged on my arm and warned me in a hoarse whisper, “I think your boyfriend’s drunk. You’d better stop him…he’s bidding on something strange.” I guess there’s no accounting for taste, because seven years later he is my husband and we still have the beautiful stained glass piece for which he was the winning bidder—and we still love it. One of summer’s most fun and unique events is the annual Ah Haa Auction, the signature fundraiser for the local arts school. This year’s James Bond-inspired theme is “License to Create” and the live auction promises to be as zany and memorable as ever.
The doors open at 5 p.m. and you can participate in the silent auction before 7 p.m., when the live auction takes the stage. There is something for everyone at the auction, from beautiful work by local artists like Julie McNair (in the above video), to vacation deals, to a special vintage VW bug painted in a theme, to this year’s polka-dot tandem bike, the items are as eclectic and magical as the school itself. Come out for a fun evening of entertainment and support a great cause.
