Join us for Corks & Karats!

by Andrea Powell, HPCCR Marketing Manager

Corks&Karats Logo_CS4Is anyone else jumping up and down with excitement upon seeing that glorious sun up in the sky today? And if you’ve looked at the weekend forecast, your happy dance won’t be ending any time soon. It should be a perfect fall weekend with sunny skies and cool temperatures. Why does that matter? Because we’re having our annual Corks & Karats fundraiser on Saturday and no rain means happy attendees!

I can’t even imagine what it would have been like if we’d held this event last weekend — humidity wreaking havoc on styled hair, trying to walk in heels in the torrential rain, awkwardly carrying prizes back to the car underneath wobbly umbrellas . . . (Wow, men just have it so much easier, don’t they?!)

Anyway, Corks & Karats is a delightful event with guests dressed to the nines, delicious food, a phenomenal band, tasty drinks, and auction items worth sparring over!  In fact, the online auction is already open so you can go ahead and stake your claim on the items you want. Food, wine, jewelry, tickets to local sporting events, vacations, artwork, and more. There really is something for everyone! And having an auction preview can help you create your battle strategy for successfully acquiring those must-have goodies.

But you must have a ticket to get in. Which means if you haven’t already purchased them, you need to go online and do so. Now.

There are a few other things happening on Saturday night you won’t want to miss. We’re featuring a speaker who’s going to tell you a story that will slice your heart wide open (in a good way, don’t worry). You’ll have an opportunity to “raise your glass” and make a direct donation to send a child to Chameleon’s Journey grief camp or pay for a day or week of hospice care. We’ll have a fun game called “heads or tails” where you’ll have the opportunity to win a designer purse or suitcase filled with amazing prizes. Needless to say, it’s going to be a hoppin’ night and we want you to be there!

So join us at Carmel Country Club on Saturday night. The fun starts at 6:30pm and won’t end until every last person has danced until their feet ache and walked away with some great auction items. Into the cool, crisp, no-umbrella-needed, non-rainy night.

Tickets for Corks & Karats are $125 which you can purchase on the Shop HPCCR page of our website. And we still have party host and table host opportunities available. Contact Nancy Cole at 704.335.4312 for more information.
