Lewiston, Maine 10.8.14 - Planning for Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice's (AHCH) 11th Annual Autumn Night Out Silent Auction & Gala event on October 24th is already well under way. The Autumn Night Out fundraiser will, once again, be held at Poland Spring Resort in Poland, ME with proceeds benefiting AHCH's Hospice Program. The evening begins at 6:00pm with hors d'oeuvres, a wine and beer tasting courtesy of Central Distributors and Baxter Brewing Co., silent auction bidding and music by Kathy Haley with dinner, live bidding and music and dancing with The Don Campbell Band to follow. Norm Karkos from WMTW News 8 will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the evening. "We've got lots of exciting new things planned for our 11th annual Autumn Night Out" said Cyndi Robbins, volunteer chair of the Autumn Night Planning Committee and owner of Poland Spring Resort & Golf Course. "With the recent changes in funding and reimbursements as of late, events like Autumn Night Out are imperative to AHCH's mission to never turn a patient away because of inability to pay. The funds raised via Autumn Night Out mean that every person needing hospice services is cared for, no matter what."
Autumn Night Out's Silent and Live Auctions include many exciting items such as gift certificates, antiques, art work by local artisans, trips and getaways. The event's planning committee also has some exciting games planned, bringing back the ever popular "Heads and Tails" game, as well as introducing a new game: "The Wine Wall". Guests can buy a raffle cork with a number that corresponds to individually wrapped bottles of wine. Wines range from the everyday to gourmet. The planning committee is still in search of auction item donations as well as bottled wine donations.
Reservations are %65.00 per person and seating is reserved. Tables of 6 or 10 may also be reserved for $390 or $650.
