Spirits for The Stars

The Silent Auction, a popular main stay at the annual event was changed for this singular year to be the main feature of the special 10th Year Anniversary party which was held on April 20th at the Intergenerational Center.  And in its place, local food and beverage establishments in Indian River County happily donated premium wines, top shelf liquor and unique beer to be raffled off to one lucky ticket buyer!  Thanks to Sunshine Furniture, their donation of an exquisite reclaimed wood banquet table valued at $1100 will be added to the jackpot for one lucky ticket winner!

The Grand Raffle will be on display, with lighting design by Keith Frederick of LED Capstone, throughout the Cocktail Reception from 6 p.m. to 7:20 p.m. and tickets will be $20 each.  Cash is preferred but charge cards will be accepted. When making a purchase, individuals will have an opportunity to make their purchase in the name of one of our star dancers and each $20 ticket purchased will be votes in their name when added to their individual totals at time of judging. The winning ticket will be drawn on stage and announced just before intermission.  Winning ticket holder must be present to win.

The spirits, among others not mentioned, have been generously donated from Big Johns Western Wear-Ft. Pierce, Chelsea’s on Cardinal, Costa d’Este Beach Resort & Spa, Filthy’s Fine Cocktails and Beer, Green Marlin Restaurant and Raw Bar, JJ Taylor, Maison Martinique, Ocean Grill, The Grove, The Stamp, Walking Tree Brewery, members of the Dancing with Vero’s Stars committee and the Healthy Start Coalition Board of Directors. A special thanks to Two Men and a Truck.
