We will be having a wine tasting and silent auction event for the Karpel sisters! For those who are not familiar, Kate (age 31) is battling stage 2 breast cancer and heaven gained another angel November 18th when Margie peacefully left this earth after battling stage 4 breast cancer. Having the support of loved ones (and in this case an entire community) behind the Karpels has helped incredibly during this difficult time. The benefit funds will go towards any of Margie's outstanding bills and towards Kate's upcoming three surgeries as she continues her battle.
The Karpels are wonderful people and they need our help! What better way than sipping on wine, munching hors d'oeuvres, bidding on gifts and listening to music. Tickets will be $20 in advance or $25 at the door. All of the proceeds from your ticket and any silent auction proceeds will go directly to the Karpels. Everyday is a new battle and if we can relieve even a portion of the financial stress of this terrible disease, we have succeeded!
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Kristie can be reached via Facebook, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone/text at 607-972-1305.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
If you pre-purchase your ticket, you will need to show it at the door or have ID that matches the list of attendees.
How does the silent auction work?
When you come, you will be given a number. All of the donations will be spread out on tables with a sheet for bidding. If you choose to bid on a donation, you write down your number and the dollar amount you are willing to spend. At 3PM all of the bidding will close and the product will go to the highest bidder. Ideally, we would like bidders to take their win that day, but we will gather your information when you enter so we can contact you after if need be.
Once all bids have been collected, you will receive a folder as you leave, pay for your purchases and collect your items!!
What can I do to help?
We are still in search of food for the event and we will be accepting donations for the silent auction until November 27th. Anything you can do to help is beyond appreciated!
