Something for Long Island Dopers

With permission from SkipMagic, I’m here to tell you about a fund raising event my chorus is hosting.
We’re having a Chinese Auction, with loads of first quality swag (no garage sale leftovers, here, folks) We’ll also be performing. The event is on Friday June 16 2006, at 7:30pm. If you are interested in the details, please visit my chorus’ website or email me.
I hope to see some of you there.

Anyrose, I’m no longer in Long Island (shoutout to the East End!), but I wish you every luck with this. Someone, anyone from up the Island, please go in my stead.

Say, how come it isn’t unPC to call them “Chinese” auctions? No-one says “Chinese Home Run” anymore, right? :smiley:

I think they’re called that because of the quart soup containers used to throw the tickets in
