As Fall quickly approaches, so does RPEC’s annual auction. The date is November 8 at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Downtown Richmond. This is not only RPEC’s biggest fundraiser of the year, it’s also RPEC’s biggest party. Two hundred fifty RPEC friends from all over the metro area gather for this bodacious blast of bidding, banter, and (im)bibing.
Plan to come when the doors open at 5:30. That will give you plenty of time to explore the hundreds of treasures in the silent auction while sipping one of your 2 complimentary cocktails, nibbling on hors d’ourves from the ample buffet table, seeing old friends, and meeting new friends. We’ll be closing the silent auction in sections this year to help you maintain that laser focus on getting the items you want.
At the end of the silent auction we’ll move to the dining room for dinner and the live auction. The bidding will be hot and heavy for the “big ticket” items so come ready to test the limit of that guy at the other table who wants the same Wintergreen getaway that you have your eyes on. And remember, if you have to go a little higher in your bidding, the proceeds of the auction go directly to funding RPEC’s programs for peace.
