(2012) This morning your roving reporter had a chance to catch up with Claudia Taylor, the very enthusiastic chairperson and organizer of the event. The first and most important question I asked was…
Are you sold out yet?
There are some tickets still available. They are fifty dollars per person. It includes a gourmet meal, open bar, a jazz quartet from CCM and a DJ after dark for dance music. You can contact me for information and tickets at 706.3149.
And it’s actually at the school?
It’s at the school, 3545 Clifton Avenue; parking is off Resor.
What can I bid on at the auction?
We have a lot of sports experience, meaning interactive sports things with the Bearcats. We have some summer camps, one of them is a Roger Bacon basketball camp, another is the Clifton children performance theater, a summer camp there. We have opera, Playhouse in the Park, Ensemble Theater, Shakespeare Theater tickets. We have Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks tickets, and we have several gift baskets that are all price ranges that appeal to all types of people. There are gift certificates to local restaurants and businesses. We also have original artwork by Andrew Van Sickle and Tom Lohre, plus a lot of vintage jewelry and sports memorabilia and collectibles.
What do you like best about the event?
What I enjoy most is it’s kind of like the end of spring, a kickoff event to really get people in the spirit in Clifton to mingle and get ready for summertime. You see people you haven’t seen since the fall….People have been inside. You see some familiar faces you don’t get to see all year around. It’s more of a Clifton even than it is for the school, because it really is an event that is so Clifton.
