"Toast of the Town": A Benefit for Rob Grogan

Toast-of-the-Town-web-poster2 On Sunday, September 22nd, we are taking part in hosting Toast of the Town Auction Benefit, a live and silent auction cocktail party at the Olde Silk Mill from 6:00 p.m. to 9 p.m.  to benefit Rob Grogan.  Rob Grogan is editor of the  Front Porch Magazine, and has been diagnosed with Carcinoid Cancer. It is a rare form of cancer with lengthy and expensive treatment options. Since this spring, “Rob's Army” has been raising funds to help offset these costs not covered by insurance.

Artist Betsy Glassie (by donating her painting "Perhaps Bonnard Will Come" 40x30 oil on canvas, for the Live Auction), and The Olde Silk Mill Inn owners, Ed & Anna Whelan (by donating their facility), have kicked off what promises to be the most exciting, fun, and must-attend event of the season.  As of this Press Release, the event boasts over eighty pieces of fine art for auction from area artists and over ninety additional items for auction donated by local business and individuals.

You may purchase tickets online, by check at Beck's antique shop, by check or cash at the PONSHOP art studio and gallery, or at the door.
