Silent Auction Fundraiser, December 11th To Be Held at Stemwinder
The Black River Academy Museum will hold its only fund raising event, a silent auction, at Ludlow’s new dining venue, Stemwinder, 46 Depot Street, Ludlow, VT, on Wed., Dec. 11th from 5 PM to 7 PM.  The new restaurant is located directly behind the Wine and Cheese Depot and it is a joint venture between Leslie Stuart, owner of the Wine and Cheese Depot and Wendy Neal, owner of “A Catered Affair”.  Hours are from 5 PM to 7 PM and guests will be able to sip wine and enjoy “American Tapas” while bidding on the wide selection of items and experiences the museum board and staff have drawn together. 
The highlighted experience this year is “I Dreamed of Africa” a truly unique experience which offers a six-day, six-night luxury safari for two in South Africa.  The safari includes three meals a day and two daily open jeep safari tours, providing unique “sightings” of South African animals.  The winning bidder will be able to schedule the safari at their convenience.  Silent auctions are known to offer very good pricing for luxury trips.  A nice way to travel and support a good cause, BRAM.
The silent auction has a wide range dollar-wise, with many of the items perfect for Christmas presents.  Dining experiences, inn stays, fitness classes, two nights at a NYC  Upper West Side apartment, ski lessons, massages and even heating oil are among  the many choices.  Another nice way to start your holiday shopping and support the museum.
