Summer Nights Gift Auction Benefits Our Gang

Jul 05, 2017

Our Gang Players presents its second annual Summer Nights Gift Auction on Saturday, July 15, at Stafford Township’s fire hall at 133 Stafford Ave. in Manahawkin. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the drawing starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance (through July 11) or $15 at the door.

Each paid admission includes one sheet of prize tickets for the gift baskets and other auction items, one door prize ticket and one drink ticket. Enjoy selections from a full food menu, and beverages are bring-your-own.

The event is an important fundraiser for the 40-year-old organization, which promotes self-confidence and teamwork in actors and crewmembers of all ages by sharing the joy of community theater. The junior division just wrapped its production of “Annie,” and soon auditions will be announced for the next show, “Mary Poppins,” for all ages, in August.

Gift baskets for the auction have been assembled by Our Gang volunteers with themes of picnic and barbecue; summer sports and recreation; “doggone it”; “purrfection”; and “how does your garden grow?” The night also offers a large variety of prizes and services to raffle off as well as a silent auction, lottery tree, 50/50 and calendar raffle.
