People & Places Sunday, Feb. 3

 Symphony Guild’s Cocktail Cabaret! fundraiser

Submitted

The Symphony Guild’s Cocktail Cabaret! fundraiser was a huge success, especially if you talk to any of the winners! Terrific prizes were donated by generous individuals and local businesses.

For instance, James Taylor, well-known artist, donated a recent oil painting that was won by David Garling. A week in a condo owned by Lyndia Heward on North Myrtle Beach will be enjoyed by Frank & Anne Saunders. Jim and Barbara Norman won two prizes: a $100 Gift Certificate donated by the Salisbury Wine Shop and Dinner with the Maestro. John & Pam Schaffer won a $200 Gift Certificate for dinner at La Cava, and Dotty Clement won two tickets to the Waterworks’ Oyster Roast. Kathy Dunn and Gene Krueger generously donated not only a four-day stay at their time share in Williamsburg (won by Jerry and Joyce McCullough) but also the hotel room in Las Vegas for the free trip won by Frank Labagnara. Gayla Bucher created a beautiful wine-and-cheese Gift Basket that was won by John and Cris Brincefield.

Attendees played blackjack, craps, and roulette in a beautifully decorated Casino and used those winnings to advance their chance to win these prizes. Everyone enjoyed the food from area restaurants and especially the stellar entertainment presented by Steve Stringer, John Stafford, and Destiny Stone.

The only question at the end of the evening was “When will the Guild hold this event again?”
