Boat Load of Wine

“Boat Load of Wine” was one of more than 100 silent auction items on display. Row boat coffee table donated by Paine’s Patio and Nautical & Nice.

The 5th Annual Autumn Seaside Gala to benefit Wings For Falmouth Families was held on Saturday, November 2, 2013 at the Flying Bridge Restaurant.  It was a sell-out crowd with over 200 guests, dozens of local sponsors and the event raised nearly $35,000 all of which will directly assist local families in need and continue to build our endowment fund towards it goal of $200k.

Over 100 silent auction items and packages were bid on during the evening, including this “Boat Load of Wine” that featured a beautiful row boat coffee table (donated by Paines Patio and Nautical & Nice) and was filled with wine bottles donated by WFFF board members and volunteers.

Next year’s event will be held at the Flying Bridge Restaurant on Saturday, November 1, 2013.  If you are interested in participating as a sponsor, donor or wish to reserve tickets, please CONTACT US.
