The Cafe au Play auction is ... all my superlatives seem small. Let me instead give you a taste
... sokol blosser winery ... private tour and tasting for eight (one of the top few destination wineries in Oregon, plus the wine is fantastic) ... oh baby lingerie ... private shopping party, fitting, champagne and $100 gift certificate (most lovingly selected, most seductive lingerie in all of the pacific northwest) ... yoga shala se ... 10 sessions of prenatal or baby-mama yoga (I wrote a piece about this here) ... roots brewing ... a day with a brewmaster (which all the board members will compete for!) ... oregon zoo ... one-year family pass (a fantastic bargain even at retail price and a constant presence in my family's wallet!) ... alma chocolate ... yes, some of the world's best chocolates ... and so much yarn, handknits, jewelry, art, photography, parties, services, truly, truly wonderful things.
Not only will you have the chance to buy these things, but wonderful things will be given to you. Sweets from Pix and cupcakes from Saint Cupcake and many delicious things from Bakery Bar and lots of local wine and beer.
