The second annual Vergas Event Center fundraiser "Enchanting Du Jour” will be held Saturday, Feb. 22 at 5:30 p.m. The Vergas Event Center will be decorated for an evening of socializing, great food, spirits, live entertainment, and silent auction.
The festivities will begin with hors d’oeuvres and opening bids on the silent auction items. The Vergas Lions will be hosting a cash bar and bottles of wine may be purchased. Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. followed by live entertainment provided by Kathryn and Andy Karg, 2gether Productions, St. Paul.
Last year the event resulted in the purchase of black banquet chairs for the Vergas Event Center. Proceeds from this year’s event will be used to purchase window treatments and additional round tables for the venue.
Event coordinator Melissa Bunkowske, a member of the City of Vergas Event Center Committee, stated, “Numerous ideas and suggestions come in on how to improve the Event Center’s marketability. Last year the chairs were top priority, this year, the window treatments are at the top of the list. They will help utilize the new projector system the Vergas Lions purchased and donated for the venue. Likewise additional round tables are needed to add to the present 10 the center has.”
Donations from businesses and individuals for the silent auction are welcome. “The community really came together last year to make this fundraiser a great success for the Event Center,” she continued.
Themed tables are the highlight of the evening. Bunkowske is seeking businesses, organizations and individuals to reserve one of the 24 tables for the event. Sponsors will get to decorate a table in whatever theme they chose.
If anyone is interested in decorating a table, there are a few tables still available. For those who want to attend the event, but do not want to host, seats are available. Info: Melissa Bunkowske, 234-1175, or e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org.
