Not that October is lacking for things to do like football, festivals, and fun events, but if you need to plan another date… check this out.
Last year Robbie and I attended our first Buy the Bayou Auction and Wine Tasting event and what an enjoyable evening. It was so much fun that we are going again this year.
This year’s event will be held on October 11, 2013, from 6:00-9:00 PM at the Northwest Florida State College Student Center in Niceville.
The tickets are $25.00 and include food, drinks, wine tasting, silent and live auction, and a gourmet dessert auction (a real crowd pleaser).
Your taste buds will be treated to some delectable delights furnished by some of our local favorites like Compass Rose, Dockside, One 20 -A Modern Bistro, and new to Niceville – Helen Back.
There are usually some fabulous silent auction items to bid on like themed baskets, gift certificates, and even some vacation getaways. The live auction is always exciting to watch as people really get caught up in the bidding frenzy for some big items.
My favorite is the dessert auction as you would not believe how competitive people get when they have their taste buds set on a certain dessert!
In any event, it is a great time to network and share a few laughs and everyone leaves full and happy and with some sort of prize. But all leave knowing they participated in a great event that benefited some awesome local organizations.
Interested in purchasing a ticket? Call the Niceville Chamber of Commerce at 850-678-2323 or visit their website for more details.
Come join us! Robbie and I will be happy to bid on your behalf…as long as your paying! 🙂
