Camden - Kings Bay Council

March 4th Silver & Gold Dolphin Scholarship Auction

For our March event we will be joining the Kings Bay Submarine Officers' Spouses' Association and the Kings Bay Submarine Chiefs' Spouses Community on March 4th at the 2017 Silver & Gold Auction benefiting the Dolphin Scholarship Foundation, which offers college scholarships to the sons and daughters of United States Naval Submarine servicemen and women, and local charities.

The Kings Bay Silver & Gold Auction is the preeminent philanthropic Navy social event of the year in Camden County. This is the second year in a row that we have teamed up with the Silver & Gold Auction as our March program, and we hope to have a large turnout of Navy Leaguers.

The 2017 Silver & Gold Auction will be held at the Fitness Center Gymnasium onboard Naval Submarine Kings Bay, with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. A Silent Auction, featuring local and regional art, crafts, goods, and services, starts at 6:00 p.m., followed by the Verbal Auction. Tickets for the event cost $30.00 per person which includes dinner, two beers OR one glass of wine OR one specialty drink.

The Auction organizers are offering a private Cigar Lounge after the Auction for ticket holders only. Cigars and liquors cost $5.00 each and tickets for these must be purchased in advance (see below).

OTHER INFORMATION

The theme for the evening is "Once Upon a Time: The Story of Good and Evil." This story line plays out in almost all fairy tales, and attendees are encouraged to bring those tales to life by wearing a costume showing your good side or your evil side. Prizes will be awarded for Best Couple, Best Good and Best Evil. Table decorations by each military command and the Navy League should also reflect this theme.

Navy League members attending this event will be seated together and are encouraged to participate in the table decoration (contact Carson Jones to volunteer) and the costume contest.

Also, the organizers are requesting donations of home made or store-bought desserts for the Hansel and Gretel Sweet Shoppe which can be purchased during the Auction. Please click here for information on who to contact to donate and when to drop off. All dessert donations are tax deductible.

Please join us on March 4th for good food, good times, fellowship, and support for a truly worthy cause. We hope to see you there.
