I just saw on Twitter that they got 9.5 inches of snow in some (quite unlucky) areas of Wisconsin yesterday and today. While I feel very sorry for those poor souls who are dragging out the shovels and the snow blowers yet one more time, I can’t help but feel smug. It’s finally springtime in the Carolinas and we are enjoying some glorious sunshine, bluebird skies, and dry weather. Each year when we finally get this gorgeous respite, we also get a tingling of anticipation. You can almost sense something delightfully fun is in your future. And it is! The 15th annual Lake Norman Hospice Regatta Party is coming your way on Saturday, May 2!
If you haven’t purchased your tickets to the “best party on the lake”, you still have a chance because we have a few left (which you can find on our website). The Lake Norman Hospice Regatta Party is an upscale evening at The Peninsula Club in Cornelius and it features delicious food, music, games, an inspirational speaker, and a well-stocked cash bar. You will also enjoy some amazing items up for bid in the live and silent auctions. And the best part about the auctions? You can do your bidding online from the comfort of your seat, using only your smart phone and your cunning, cutthroat strategies to get the items that you want.
Need some incentive to get your tickets? How about a sneak peek into some of the items up for bid? We’ve got an unbelievable trip to the Napa Valley which includes a 3-night stay at a fabulous resort and a three-hour gourmet dinner for two on the Napa Valley Wine Train. This trip also includes round-trip coach class airfare for two. Yeah, you can just go ahead and sign me up for that one.
We’ve also got a week-long stay in a two bedroom condo (which sleeps eights) in Hilton Head. One week of hanging out on the beach, listening to the waves, and catching up with your friends (who will adore you for inviting them).
Or maybe you just want a quick getaway to the mountains? We’ve got a one-night stay at a bed & breakfast in Banner Elk.
Plus, we’ve got golf packages, jewelry, nights at the Grove Park Inn, and a ton more. To put it simply, there are more than enough reasons for you to get your bidding on at this awesome event. Not to mention it supports a wonderful organization making a huge impact within its community — Hospice & Palliative Care Lake Norman.
The party starts at 6:30pm on Saturday, May 2 at the Peninsula Club in Cornelius. Tickets are $100, which is a tiny investment in the massive amount of fun you’re going to have, especially if you end up outbidding me for the Napa trip. Now, if you’re coming here from snowy Wisconsin, we’ll probably let you in for free. You’ve seriously suffered enough.
