The Spirits of the Civic auction will be moved to a total online experience May 17 - 23, 2020. The auction site will be opened for bidding at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 17 and bidding will end at 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 23.
Featuring nearly 80 different fun items, the auction has something for everyone. Special this year in honor of the Wild Oscar’s Night Out theme is an exclusive Movie Night at the Civic for you and 49 of your closest friends. You pick the movie for the big screen and work out a mutually agreeable date with the Jewel on Main Street.
If you or someone you know is in need of a little “couple’s therapy,” look no further than the unique opportunity to smash a couple of guitars on the Civic stage. Couple’s therapy? Yeah, for a couple of rockin’ guitar smashers! The package includes a winners’ champagne toast and a video recording of the experience.
The Swag Bags, for which we’ve had a great response from the gala committee and Women’s Guild members, will be a new feature of the auction. These themed bags include beauty and pampering items, treats for your favorite pup, delicious food and beverages, accoutrements for a great movie night, gardening, kids and more.
Adventures include a Goodyear Blimp ride for two; flying lessons at Akron Fulton Airport; a weekend getaway at Put-in-Bay; and a Summit Metro Parks kayaking tour. Annual favorites are back, such as the fabulous Falls Wheel & Wrench bicycle; our wine refrigerator package presented by the board of directors; various artworks from local artists; guitars and posters signed by national performers who played the Civic in the last year; and lots of different restaurant certificates, a great convenience in this time of carry-out and curbside pick-up.
