The theme for this year’s Sid Jacobson JCC’s Auction for Excellence is “We Get by with a Little Help From Our Friends.”
The auction will take place Saturday, Jan. 30, 2010, at the JCC in East Hills. Community members can lend their support to the JCC and bid live for one-of-a-kind experiences including an on-field experience package with The New York Giants, a dinner for 10 prepared in your home by chef Dino Gatto of Rao’s Italian Restaurant in New York City and a $5,000 shopping spree at the Americana Manhasset with a personal shopper and lunch at Toku.
There will also be plenty of auction items that won’t break the bank. Another feature is a terrific raffle prize. For $100, you can enter to win a trip to Pebble Beach, CA. The Pebble Beach Golf Foursome Package includes four roundtrip continental airline coach tickets, two double rooms at the Lodge at Pebble Beach for three nights and three rounds of golf at the Pebble Beach Golf Links, The Links at Spanish Bay and Spyglass Hill Golf Club. There are limited raffle tickets available for sale.
