The Merced Symphony Association is scheduled to hold its annual fundraiser “Savor Our Symphony 2014: Italian Night” from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. today at the Italo-American Lodge.
The evening will feature hors d’oeuvres and a no-host bar, along with a silent and live auction. All proceeds will help fund symphony concerts, concerts for children and educational programs, according to a symphony press release. Auction items include vacation cabins, sailboat rides, an authentic Italian dinner for eight with wine, jewelry, dining at local restaurants, tickets for the 2014-2015 symphony season, art, tire rotations, sports memorabilia, and more. There’s also the highly prized “mystery bag,” which spurs competitive bidding.
Individual tickets are $35. Special sponsorship tables for eight are available for $500.
Tickets and tables of eight are sold only in advance. Individual tickets are available at the Merced Multicultural Arts Center, Merced Floral, Christina’s Fine Clothing, and Goldsmith Jewelers in Atwater. To reserve a table or for information, call (209) 383-3277 and leave a message by Monday. More information is at www.mercedsymphony.org.
