Give a Gift With Bay Street

authorStaff Writer on Nov 22, 2022

Bay Street Theater will open bidding for its annual virtual Holiday Silent Auction on Friday, November 25. The Holiday Silent Auction has become a main fundraising event at Bay Street and proceeds raised from the auctioned items supports the theater in its commitment to the performing arts and educational programs. Bidding will remain open until Sunday, December 4, at noon.

“We all have that ‘hard-to-buy-for’ person in our lives,” says Executive Director, Tracy Mitchell. “She’s a golfer? Bid on a round at the very private Bridge Club with actor Richard Kind. Grandkids visiting with no plans? Maybe a week of theater camp will be right up their alley. There are some really fun experiences to find at our annual auction.

“What better way to get your holiday shopping done, but from the comfort of your own bed, and for a good cause?”

One-of-a-kind collectible items, experiences and travel packages have been provided by a gracious list of donors, including local businesses and top-name celebrities. This year, bidders will have an opportunity to win such items as autographed memorabilia; a seven-night cruise from Viking Cruises; a round of golf with Richard Kind at The Bridge; a script review by Bay Street Artistic Director Scott Schwartz; signed martini glasses by Tovah Feldshuh, star of “Funny Girl” on Broadway; a 90-minute playwriting session with Will Pomerantz; Blade Helicopter transportation to or from City Airports; and much more.
