Mane Event Reminders:

  • The Foundation has a new auction platform this year. When you arrive at the event, you will see QR codes at each auction item and at the entrance. Please use this to get registered to bid (if you don't do it earlier)! Ticket purchase no longer registers you to the auction website.
  • Do you like to play games? Lion Bundle purchases will be available at the entrance. One bundle is usually enough for a couple. This includes one wine or whiskey/bourbon pull, two heads or tails entries, one buyback for heads or tails, and $1,500 in casino chips. Wine Lion Bundles are $100 and Whiskey Lion Bundles are $125. We can only accept cash, check or Venmo for these purchases, so please be prepared for that. This is due to gaming regulations.
  • What are you wearing? You can go glam or you can go costume... or, wear casual! The Foundation office will be Legally Blonde if that helps. Anything is accepted. I have also been told Napoleon Dynamite is making an appearance.
  • Check in begins at 6 PM and the program will begin at 7. We hope to have you all seated with your dinner by 7. This will be a buffet style dinner serving:
    • Fresh Fruit and Garden Salad
    • Herb Roasted Breast of Chicken (White Wine Butter Sauce)
    • Medley of Seasonal Vegetables
    • Butter whipped potatoes
    • Assorted rolls and butter
  • We will have a Dessert Dash this year... be prepared to peruse desserts as you enter and you will find instructions on your table for the dash!
  • The silent auction will be made public this year. We plan to post this link on our social media on Thursday, March 2nd. So, if you have friends that wanted to come or just wanted to see what we have, feel free to share the link with them when you receive it.

Mane Event 2023 "Going Hollywood" will offer a new atmosphere at Elmcrest Country Club boasting separate spaces for silent auction, gaming, and entertainment fun. Come ready to play Blackjack, Craps, and Roulette in the dedicated gaming room (aka Zach room)! Or, you can hang out in the ballroom and test your team on trivia. Lastly, peruse the Sunrise room and hallways to view the silent auction items available for bidding. Don't miss the Wine/Whiskey/Bourbon pull as well!!

What is the dress this year? Think of your favorite movie... "Top Gun" comes to mind. Maybe Maverick and Charlie? Maybe your whole table dresses up as one movie... the possibilities are endless. Think of this as an adult costume party.
