There will be a 50-50 drawing; a Chinese auction featuring a variety of items; and a special drawing for a Pittsburgh Public Theater-themed basket that offers a lot of goodies, including four tickets to "1776," a parking pass, two Tiffany necklaces, a bottle of champagne, four crystal flutes, special Pittsburgh made chocolates; and a $100 gift certificate to the Meat and Potatoes Restaurant located in downtown Pittsburgh next to the theater.
And then there's the grand prize - a sterling amethyst necklace with seven oval stones donated by Discovery Jewelers of Wintersville. Everyone who attends - excluding club members - will be eligible to win this through a drawing where everyone's admission ticket is entered.
Proceeds benefit the club's scholarship fund with the money generated going to three scholarships: the Glenda Dunlope Scholarship, the Wintersville Woman's Club Scholarship and the Eastern Gateway Community College Scholarship
