The Red Barn Affair is a cocktail party, with hors d’oeuvres and desserts, live music, door prizes, a valuable raffle, and a silent auction. Bidding will begin at 5 pm. Some of the most coveted auction items, all donated by area businesses and individuals to help the friends meet their annual fundraising goals, include gift certificates for area restaurants; pottery, jewelry, quilts, decorative pillows, and table décor, all hand-crafted; framed paintings, prints, and photography; antiques; Mount Snow and Stratton Resort ski tickets and golf green fees; a hand-painted skateboard by Skip Morrow; a catered Swiss fondue party; and even an overnight stay at a bed and breakfast in Newport, RI. Guests can take a chance on winning a new 10 foot kayak. The winner of the raffle will be drawn after the silent auction bidding closes at 7 pm.
Throughout the evening, everyone will be entertained by the popular duo Hungrytown, of Townshend. Ken Anderson and Rebecca Hall tour extensively and have released two CDs that have received high critical acclaim and airplay in North America, Europe, and Australia.
