A Great CHEF Begins with Mise-en-Place

February 17, 2006

Preparations are under way for the Croton-Harmon Education Foundation’s (CHEF) largest annual fundraiser—the “Under the Stars” Dinner, Dance and Auction—to be held on Saturday, June 3, 2006 at the Senasqua Lodge in Croton Point Park.

CHEF is currently seeking volunteers and auction donations of various kinds for the event.

If you are interested in helping as a volunteer, please contact Colleen Roeschel at 914-271-6728 or Walter Johnson at 914-271-8809.

For those who are interested in providing donations for the silent auction to be held during the night of the event, please review the following list of ideas;

  • Your preferred varietals to Chef’s “International Wine Cellar”,
  • A “behind the scenes” tour of your workplace,
  • Autographed memorabilia,
  • Gift certificates from local businesses,
  • A week or weekend stay package at your second home,
  • Tickets to a sporting event or arts performance,
  • Pet sitting or dog walking services, and
  • Artwork, to name a few…

Please also note that due to space limitations, CHEF cannot accept used items for the auction unless they are works of art or collectibles

Additionally, CHEF organizers are also looking for specialized donations for the night of the event such as;

  • DJ services,
  • Party supplies or discounts,
  • Decorations such as plants or an ice sculpture, and
  • Cash donations are also helpful in offsetting the costs of the event.

Please contact either Suzanne Gilman at 914-271-4432 or Linda Szoboszai at 914-271-8118 with questions or more information pertaining to event donations.

The Croton-Harmon Education Foundation is a privately operated not-for-profit organization dedicated to generating flexible support for creative educational initiatives in our public schools.
