North Syracuse school to host annual 'Labor of Love' dinner and silent auction
Allen Road Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization will host their second annual "Labor of Love" Valentine dinner and silent auction from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday Feb. 11 at the school. The cost of the event is $4 per person with a family maximum of $20 per family. Proceeds from the auction will benefit North Area Meals on Wheels.
The school's doors will open at 5:30 p.m. to start the viewing and bidding of ceramic soup bowls, created and painted by the school's staff and being auctioned by the PTO. Dinner will be served from 6 to 8 p.m. buffet style, continuously.
Bidding for the silent auction will end at 7:30 p.m. with winners announced at the end of the auction in order for those who wish to bring their bowls home at dinner's end to be able to do so. Winning bidders who leave early will be contacted by phone and will have one week to pick up bowls before going to next highest bidder.
This is a family friendly event with a children's menu available and entertainment including live accordion music by Dominic Bellardini, a showing of the movie "Lady and the Tramp" and Valentine card making to send to Troops abroad and/or to give to family members. Be sure to bring your camera to take your own "Sweetheart Picture" at our Valentine Corner! A Valentine Door Prize will be given out at the end of the night.
