Love is in the air as Museum on Main prepares for its 12th annual Wines & Valentines fundraiser at Castlewood Country Club at 6 p.m. on Feb. 8.
The night begins with a cocktail hour featuring sparkling wine, a no-host bar, and a chance to bid on the famous silent auction baskets prepared by board members. At 7 p.m., guests will enjoy a three-course dinner of either filet mignon, Covina sea bass or vegetable risotto, with appropriate wines.
Between each course, there will be the traditional 2-bit auction, with guests betting quarters on a wide variety of small prizes. A special game of Heads or Tails will lead into a spirited live auction with a chance for unique opportunities. The evening concludes with a drawing.
"Many guests return year after year for the great food and wine," museum director Jim DeMersman said. "But they also love the 2-bit auction."
Tickets to the event are $95 per person and may be purchased at www.museumonmain.org; at Museum on Main, 603 Main St.; or by calling 462-2766. This year's Sweetheart Sponsor is the Republic Family of Companies.
