Off to the Races: A Spring Fundraising Auction

May 6, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Ticket sales are underway at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church for the Live and Silent “Kentucky Derby” Auction to be held on Saturday, May 6. All proceeds benefit Mission Outreach Programs. Festivities begin at 5:30 PM. All are welcome!

The Derby will be shown on St. Luke’s recently installed state-of-the art audiovisual equipment, a gift provided by the family of the late Mrs. Betty Merck. As Mrs. Merck was an avid equestrian and St. Luke’s parishioner, the theme is a fitting way to honor her and her legacy of being involved in the community.

The night’s festivities include one complimentary Bourbon and Ginger, assorted beverages and delicious appetizers and desserts catered by AllowMePC. Raffle Tickets will be sold on site for a fun game of chance as you pick your Derby Horse to Win, Place or Show. One prize will be awarded to the Best Dapper Derby Attire and one prize for Best Derby Bonnet. The night features a wide array of quality silent auction items (Bidding Closes at 7:15 PM) and live auction items (Bidding Begins at 7:45 PM). The event concludes at 8:30 PM.

If you would like to be purchase admission tickets, be an underwriting sponsor, or donate items for the Silent and Live Auctions, please contact the Church Office at 908-234-0002.

A sampling of the Missions St. Luke’s supported by 100% of the proceeds of this event include: The Lion of Judah, Houses to Homes Guatemala, The Community Soup Kitchen of Morristown, Somerset Chaplaincy to the Elderly and the Episcopal Relief and Development.
