Silent auction at the EYC’s lavish July 13 dinner event

The EYC’s July 13 fundraising dinner is not only about sailing.  It’s the most lavish party of the EYC summer season, a chance to socialize with your EYC friends while supporting the EYC.  Even if you are not able to stay for the post-dinner presentation, you can attend for cocktails, appetizers, the silent auction and dinner.

Among the items available in the silent action will be:

*  A hand-carved EYC burgee sign – the very one which has been hanging outside the EYC for years.

*  The naming rights to one of the EYC’s Boston Whaler safety boats.

*  EYC-logo apparel exclusive to this event, which you cannot obtain in any other way.

*  EYC-themed art and other works from well-known local artists.

*  A variety of items and gift certificates from local restaurants, cafes, businesses and EYC members.

You must attend the dinner to participate in the auction.  EYC membership is not required to attend this event.  Advance reservations are required, and seats are limited.  To reserve your seats, go to

Do you have something you could contribute to the auction?  Perhaps a boat you are not using any more, tickets to a Packers game or other sporting events, a rare bottle or two from your wine cellar or liquor cabinet, a week at a vacation home away from Door County, merchandise from your store or business, or a gift certificate for a special service?  The EYC will thank you in our printed program and in the Eagle’s Cry, and your donation will be tax-deductible.  If you wish to support the EYC by donating a silent auction item, please contact [email protected]
