Weekly update – 24 Days to go!
April 27, 2016


I hope everyone had a delightful Spring Break. Here is the tale of the tape this week:

Days to go: 24
Attendees so far: 90
Auction Items so far: 37
Wine Bottles so far: 49
The Wine Table is starting to look a little more robust, but there is still room for more:
The list of auction items is starting to shape up. Here’s a little teaser: there just might be 2 tickets each to 2 rivalry games for a certain Chicago baseball team that people think might actually make something of themselves this year. I don’t want to mention the team by name, but it rhymes with Kubs…

And finally, just as a reminder, we are down to just over a week left of the early-bird ticket price of $125. That price is good through May 6, starting May 7 the price will increase to $150.
Tickets are available for purchase at
