Donations needed for LPC Wine Tasting Silent Auction

The 25th Annual  LPC Wine Tasting Gala and FUNdraiser is coming up fast: Sunday, May 26 at The Pub Restaurant and Wine Bar. Through the years, Islanders have looked forward to the opening of the high season, when we can mingle with returning Summer folks and early tourists after the long winter.

Once again we will rely on the generous nature of our members and neighbors to contribute something to the Silent Auction. We’re looking for art, music, books, gadgets, tools, donations of services, and even slightly used but still worthwhile memorabilia and objet d’art.

If you don’t know what what to donate, consider commissioning a local artist to create a special work of art, or purchase a piece by your favorite Island artist from one of the several island galleries. Other great ideas are gift certificates from local eateries and specialties stores, sports tickets, or consider donating some of your Madeline Island memorabilia—photos, artwork, or anything else that Island aficionados would appreciate! Know that proceeds from the sale of your donation will go to supporting Island art and artists, as we have for over 30 years.

Donations are still needed for our Silent Auction. They can be dropped off Monday and Tuesday from May 20 – 21, 10 AM – 2 PM in the basement of St. John’s Church, and Wednesday through Friday, May 22 – 24 at the Lightkeeper’s Lodge next to the Inn . Call Barbara at 715.209.5471 for more details. Donations are tax deductible.

Live Auction Item: Murder Mystery Dinner for 8 at Wood’s Manor

The La Pointe Center for the Arts is gearing up for our Annual Wine Tasting Gala and Fundraiser taking place this Sunday, May 28 at the Pub Restaurant and Wine Bar. $30 tickets include round-trip passenger ferry fee for those on the mainland. Come and bid on hundreds of intriguing and one-of-a-kind silent auction items while sipping wine on the shores of the lake. Doors open at 2 PM.

This year our live auction includes a Murder Mystery Dinner for eight, catered by Seiche and to take place at Wood’s Manor, a spectacular 12-bedroom island home built in 1924.

Imagine Wood’s Manor is the famous Powar Oriental Gardens Theater in Hollywood. It’s 1936 and guests are gathered to enjoy the glitter and glare of the Powar Film Studio’s newest release, Powar and Greede. A dinner for the cast is being hosted by W. Anton Powar in a private dining room adjacent to the party. Excitement turns to horror when a murder is discovered, and guests must decide who amongst them have committed the crime.

Pick a beautiful autumn evening between September 7 and October 10, 2017 and bring your friends for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to enjoy Wood’s Manor, now the private residence Jean Mescher and Paul Guerin, who are generously opening their home to help benefit the La Pointe Center for the Arts.

Wine Tasting tickets are available at the Madeline Island Ferry Office, the Madeline Island Chamber of Commerce, Stone’s Throw in Bayfield. $5 off at the door if you bring a glass from a prior wine tasting.
