Preliminary Catalog of Auction Items!
In addition to the usual silent auction, we are adding a live auction for 2015. The live auction will feature exciting getaways to Annapolis, Provence and Manhattan, a dinner with wine at Rose's Luxury, and a chance at a flight of single malt scotch. Also new this year, you will have several opportunities to bid on ways to directly help CHV members. (Items are subject to change.)
Salon Events promise dinners, or other repasts, with the famous and fascinating, and are are offered for a fixed price per seat. The number of guests allowed varies per Salon event and is limited by the size of the home where the event is held. This year's stellar roster of guests includes dinner with Julian Bond, civil rights leader, professor, writer, and Georgia state legislator. Or, you may choose to dine and converse with Capitol Hill neighbors Marie Arana and Jonathan Yardley. Marie is an author and the former editor of Washington Post Book World. Jonathan is the Postís Pulitzer Prize-winning book critic.
Or take a seat at the table with the Honorable Eleanor Holmes Norton and Lynn Povich, author and the first female senior editor of Newsweek as they discuss "Good Girls Revolt." Join WAMU reporter/anchor Rebecca Sheir; television and stage actor Ted Van Griethuysen; Associated Press Supreme Court reporter Mark Sherman; and more, including former DC Mayor Tony Williams, former White House speechwriter Jeff Nussbaum, Navy Blue Angels pilot Tom Winkler, Smithsonian anthropologist Dr. Pegi Jodry, and Dr. Joel Breman an international expert in infectious diseases.
In this auction, vacation houses go to the highest bidder over a minimum bid. Generous owners are offering weeks or specific days at their houses in Vermont, Maine, Philadelphia, and Baja. Closer locations for shorter trips include St. Michael's and Deep Creek Lake in Maryland, Berkeley Springs in West Virginia or Dewey Beach in Delaware. We are sure you'll find your perfect vacation spot, while helping Capitol Hill Village.
