It's time again to make plans to join us on November 6, 2010, for one of North Carolina's most stunning and exciting black-tie fundraising galas of the year!
Since 1994, the Scotland Memorial Foundation has played annual host to its premiere fundraising event, Putting on the Ritz-A Gala of Giving. From the moment of arrival, Ritz guests enjoy five-star service, including valet parking, coat-check services, and assistance by our maitre d' in directing guests to their reserved seating in our extraordinarily elegant ballroom. Once in the ballroom, guests partake of exquisitely prepared entrees and decadent desserts prepared by our Master Chef.
Silent and Live Auctions
During the evening, lively competition takes center stage as guests bid on one-of-a-kind items and packages in the Ritz silent and live auctions, directed by auctioneer, Matt Holiday. From pottery to Christmas decorating to vacations, these items will generate some serious bidders. The evening's top package is a vacation for two in a suite at a U.S. Ritz-Carlton hotel for four days, three nights. The package includes airfare for two. It's a trip worth approximately $6,200. The Ritz-Carlton caters to your every whim and pampers you with refined elegance and impeccable service. Don't miss out on this item, your bid could be the winner.
And, as if that were not enough indulgence and excitement for one evening, guests will dance the night away to ballroom musical selections and a live performance by Cammy Award winning The Holiday Band.
