Auction Oct 1 2016 Flyer Ltr Size.jpg

Be sure to make your reservation for a wonderful evening of food, fun, and feverish bidding at our third annual Grande Night to Remember Saturday evening, October 1 at the Lafayette Grande Banquet Facility in downtown Pontiac. This year's theme is Characters in Time. Dress for dinner or as your favorite historical character, and we'll supply a few characters of our own, including OCPHS president and auctioneer Fred Liimatta, and our special guest MCs, Tim Travis of Goldner Walsh Garden & Home and OCPHS board member Sara Cote! The evening runs 6 - 10 p.m. and includes a buffet dinner (cash bar), live & silent auction, and the satisfaction of helping support OCPHS. Tickets are $25 each, or $200 for a table of 8. Please RSVP by September 27 to reserve your seats. We welcome donations of quality items to sell at the auction, too. If you have antiques, collectables, or unique treasures to offer, let us know! Here's looking forward to another Grande Night to Remember on October 1!
