The Abilities Guild is holding its 11th Annual Holiday Gala on Sunday, December 2, 2012, 6:30 PM at the Belleair Country Club. All proceeds benefit the Abilities Foundation, a 501 c (3) nonprofit support organization which helps returning disabled and/or homeless veterans to secure housing, jobs, and clothing.
Tickets must be purchased in advance. Admission for a single is $100. Angel Admission is $150, and Veteran Sponsorship is $40.
The event will begin at 6:30 pm with a cocktail hour and a Silent Auction; sponsors have donated over 60 valuable items which will go the highest bidder. Dinners at fine restaurants, themed baskets, reservations at local hotel resorts, and certificates for a wide variety of services will all be available to bidders.
Dinner will begin at 7:45 pm. The highlight of the evening will be a Live Auction conducted by American Fundraising Auctions. Fantastic trips to exotic locations as well as fine jewelry and wine will be featured.
Comedian Mark Klein will entertain after dinner, and dancing will follow to provide a lively close to this fun-filled evening devoted to our local veterans who need a boost to get them back into civilian life.
