More Items Donated, 50/50 Raffle & Entertainment Add to the Excitement

A beautiful caned and refinished chair donated by Rod Wilson of Meredith is another item selected for the Summer Silent Auction to benefit Interlakes Community Caregivers and the Lakes Region Food Pantry.  The auction will be held on Saturday, July 8th at the Moultonborough Function Hall (formerly known as the Lions Club building) on Old Route 109 from 3 to 7pm.

“The services provided by these two nonprofits are important to so many people and are needed in our community,” stated Rod Wilson when asked why he wanted to donate to the fundraiser.

Many may know Rod from the family business of BasketWorld, a local shopping destination for decades specializing in caned and rattan furniture and other goods.  Rod has been honing his skills over the years, specifically since 2009 when he closed the business, and now offers his talents through his business “Yesterday to Today”.

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 now at the offices of both Community Caregivers and the Food Pantry and other locations.

Some of the other great auction items include a Flat Screen TV, large Popcorn Maker, Kayak, and Mountain Bike.  Fun family activities include passes to Florida’s Magic Kingdom and Universal Studios, regional destinations such as Boston Duck Tours, York’s Wild Kingdom, Mohegan Sun and local ones such as the Squam Lakes Science Center, Polar Caves and Castle in the Clouds.  Don’t forget winter activities, such as passes to Bretton Woods. Guests will also be able to bid on restaurant gift certificates such as Indian Head Resort, Cup and Crumb, and Common Man restaurants.  Donations continue to be gratefully accepted by contacting either Community Caregivers or the Food Pantry.
