Keep the Heat On Auction Promises to be the Best Ever

PLYMOUTH — Ticket sales for the January 15, 2014, Keep the Heat On Dinner Auction are off to a brisk start at Chase Street Market.

The Plymouth Area Community Closet (PACC) and the Keep the Heat On (KTHO) Committee thank their generous friends who have responded to the urgent appeal for fuel assistance funds for our neighbors.
The live auction by Lisa Lovett will be the culmination of a fun-filled evening that will also include a silent auction and a buffet dinner supplied by over 20 local restaurants and their chefs—all to raise money for local families in need of heating fuel assistance.

As the snow flies, are you dreaming of a getaway to the beach? One generous donor has given a Nantucket seaside getaway for 4 people. Is a day on the lake more to your taste? We have a boat trip and barbeque on Lake Winnipesauke for you. Perhaps a stay in a secluded mountain cottage? Five nights in the "Coop," with its glorious views of Newfound Lake sunsets, are yours to bid on. How about a trip to the city? You'll have your choice of Boston or New York for a 2-night stay at the Westin Hotel.
For those who prefer to stay at home, there are such diverse offerings as a dinner party prepared in your home by renowned chef Franz Dubach (including fine wines to complement each course), custom stone design for your yard and garden, a beautiful hand-made queen size quilt by the Heartfelt Quilters Guild, or dance lessons for 6 by the Lakes Region Scuffers.
The silent auction will feature products, services, and gift certificates donated by numerous area businesses and craftspeople. They range from practical (like an oil change or chimney cleaning) to luxurious (an onyx & gold necklace or hand knit sweater) to funky (an Art Deco mermaid lamp or jigsaw puzzle featuring President Obama). If you've been to KTHO in the past, you'll truly appreciate the expanded browsing space that the new location at PSU's Prospect Hall will provide.

Tickets for KTHO on are on sale now at Chase Street Market for $35 each, and are limited again this year. Call Veronica Barba Doroat 536-7207 or Doug Grant at 536-5823 to reserve tables. Keep the Heat On is organized and sponsored by the Plymouth Area Democrats partnered with Plymouth Area Community Closet in their continued mission to provide assistance to our neighbors.
