Auction Spotlight: Delicious Eats!

Hi BBC Family!
I am personally not what you would call a “good cook.”  I have joked with friends that the smoke detector and the oven timer are basically the same thing.  Yes, I have burned broccoli while attempting to steam it, and I have practically dehydrated asparagus while trying to roast it.  The only real “specialty” that I make is Rice Krispie Treats – and that is simply because I add EXTRA marshmallows to the recipe on the box.  (But they are so good!)
Needless to say, I really appreciate those who have skills in the kitchen and are willing to share them.
We are so excited to be featuring some friends of camp, who are also very talented home chefs, and are offering up what they do best!  At the BBC Annual Benefit Auction you could win yourself an amazing culinary delight.  We are talking drool worthy!
For the CHOCOHOLICS out there, like myself, I would strongly suggest  bidding on Gwen Groff’s Flourless Chocolate Torte with Raspberry Coulis.  I think the name says it all – but it is simply a decadent treat not to be missed.  Charles Shultz said: “All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”  How true!
For the SEAFOOD LOVERS, there are two great options to consider.  First – you could treat yourself to a batch of Phil Wilkerson’s famous Maryland Fresh Blue Crab Cakes!  He will make them to order with a week’s notice, and you can pick them up in Bridgewater.  That sounds like a perfectly delicious dinner – and no dishes!  Amazing!
Secondly – you could enjoy a full 4-Course Seafood Dinner Extravaganza, cooked for you by, and hosted in the home of, Abner and Virginia Schlabach.  Everything they make is wonderful and their hospitality is second to none.  This would be such a great evening – don’t miss out!  The menu includes things like cream of crab soup, salad with scallops, and grilled catch of the day with mango salsa. Yum!
Finally – You can also win a full Dinner for Eight People – cooked and delivered to you by Donna Miles.  She will design a menu style to your choice, deliver it do your house, and dessert is included.  This sounds like a great way to have friends and family over for a fun evening – and not have to worry about cooking.  And it is guaranteed to be delicious.
Virginia Woolf said that “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
To that I say: Let the bidding begin!

Auction Spotlight: snuggly socks (you could wear to the mountain)

Hello!

The BBC Annual Benefit Auction is only 3 sleeps away. Yay- I can’t wait!

Not only is this a great way to score some amazing items, but you get to help send kids to camp in the process. That is what I call a WIN-WIN!

Have you checked out our website yet to start your ‘WISH LIST’ of things you want to bid on? I have, and so I thought I would share are a couple of the items that I am very excited about.  

I don’t know about you, but there is something wonderful about wearing a brand new pair of socks. That feeling is just so cozy and perfect, and totally makes an average day into something special. And if they are a FUN pair of socks, that is even better. So – I totally have my eye on all the amazing Solmate Socks we have to choose from on the auction list. The snuggle is real! Which design will be your favorite? Or maybe you will find the perfect pair for a friend! (Plus – this is a great item to use as a stocking stuffer for those of you early birds who are already in Christmas shopping mode)

And where better to wear those awesome socks – than to the MOUNTAIN! I am a snowboarder, and I look forward to carving up some winter fun. How awesome that we have donated tickets to Killington, Okemo, and Suicide Six. Now, I just need to decide which one to bid on! I guess having too many great options is not a bad problem to have.

I recommend you check out the website and start making your own Wish List. We hope to see you on Saturday, from 9am-Noon, at the Auction.

Love,

Courtney “Wonder Woman” Hollingsworth
