Join us on Wednesday, October 21, 2020
Unfortunately, our usual in-person event at La Ferme Restaurant will not be possible this year...but we're going to do our best to create some community unity! Rain or Shine, we will be staging a
outside walk-by/drive-by event at
3404 Taylor Street, Chevy Chase MD
from 5:30pm - 7pm
A portion of the ticket purchases will go towards helping local familes afford safe, quality child care.
Take the night off from cooking by purchasing a ticket that includes a delicious Rocklands BBQ dinner. We will have it on-hand for you to pick up and take home to eat. Silent auction winnings can be picked up at the same time. If you can't swing by (or would prefer not to) we will arrange to drop off your auction item(s) later.
**all food should be consumed at home and not at the event - we want to create a safe place to say a quick hello without congregating**
You must "purchase" a free, "Silent Auction Only" ticket, to bid in our silent auction, if you do not wish to purchase a meal.
Our event, this year, will feature an on-line silent auction that will open for bids on October 7 and run through Oct 18. Since so many of the usual silent auction offerings (tickets to sporting events, theaters, etc.) are out of the question this year, we have chosen to feature one-of-a-kind items made or offered by friends and supporters. We had no idea how talented many of you are! If you are looking for some really unique and beautiful gifts for holidays or birthdays (or for yourself!!) you will enjoy browsing and bidding on these items!!
