THE EVENT

 

The 7th Annual Wreath, Menorah, Stocking Auction is titled, “Holiday Masquerade”, and draws its inspiration from the Venetian Carnival.

 

The concept for this annual event is to challenge the local Architectural & Design community to use their talent in the creation of a unique Wreath, Menorah, or Stocking.

 

The entries compete for prizes in multiple theme based
categories, then these one of-a-kind pieces are auctioned to raise money for charity.

 

Last year, over 225 guests attended to enthusiastically bid on the 65+ entries up for auction. All proceeds went to benefit Community Servings.

 

This year’s event will be held on the evening of
Wednesday, December 10th and again all proceeds will
go to
Community Servings.

 

We expect more wonderful entries, increased attendance and support.  As well as a wonderful response to the
newly added table top tree category.

 

Community Servings. This organization is dedicated
to providing free home delivered meals throughout eastern Massachusetts to people affected by
life-threatening illnesses.

Anthony Corey

Anthony Corey is owner and founder of Anthony Corey Neckwear. He is an accomplished artist and an avid horseman, whose natural aesthetic sense and personal interests enable him to create these beautifully designed neckties. Anthony is also a style commentator for print and television media.

Dedicated to charitable pursuits, Anthony is involved with several worthy causes locally and nationally. He has been commissioned to design several ties for very special groups, including a ribbon design in pink for breast cancer research, and another in red for AIDS research.  All profits from the sale of these ties go directly to the charities. Anthony's love of animals motivated him to build kennels that shelter retired greyhounds and ready them for adoption, saving them from their all-too-often tragic fate. Since its inception, his kennel has placed more than 90 animals with caring owners.
