As the July 8th Silent Auction to benefit Interlakes Community Caregivers and the Lakes Region Food Pantry draws near, another great auction item has been donated by Relief Bodyworks and Massage of Meredith.  The public is invited to come and bid on this and the other hundred items, enjoy some entertainment and a barbecue on Saturday, July 8th from 3 to 7pm at the Moultonborough Function Hall (formerly known as the Lions Club building) at 139 Old Route 109, Moultonborough.
“I know firsthand the importance of caregiving and caregiver support since my wife’s diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease several years ago,” stated David deSousa, the practitioner of Relief Bodyworks & Massage who has donated a one and a half hour massage treatment to the auction.  “It’s my pleasure to donate to the Community Caregivers’ fundraising effort.”
DeSousa is a licensed massage therapist with over 300 hours of study from Steve Lockhart Myotherapy in Australia.  This is a unique method of treating acute and chronic pain by treating the entire muscle systems and has served hundreds of DeSousa’s clients. Relief Bodyworks is located at the Wellness Center at Meredith Bay Colony Club.  For more information, visit his website ReliefBodyworks.MassageTherapy.com and contact him at 387-0950 or [email protected]
In addition to the auction at this fundraiser, Bryan Conway, a well-known local musician, will entertain the crowd with his songs, music and personality.  A delicious barbecue of hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and soda will be available at a nominal fee.  The 50/50 Raffle drawing will take place, with tickets on sale at the offices of both Community Caregivers and the Food Pantry and at the event ($5 each or 5 for $20).
There is something for everyone on the list of auction items, whether for yourself or as a gift to others.  The wide variety includes whale watching with the New England Aquarium, sunset cruises on Boston Bay, hopper passes to all four Walt Disney Parks and passes to the Magic Kingdom.  If dining out is your pleasure, gift cards from a variety of restaurants include Crazy Gringo, Fratello’s,  Cactus Jack’s, The Mug and Weathervane Restaurants.  Looking for a cultured night out?
