About The Event

No need to descend 20,000 leagues to find “Under the Sea: Party with a Porpoise,” our biannual live-auction party. Just come to the Parish Hall, costumed and ready to dine, dance, and bid! 

Purchase your tickets online 

A $60 ticket buys you hors d’oeuvres at the cocktail reception, 2 drink tickets, a Caribbean-themed buffet dinner, musical entertainment, dancing, and—most important—the excitement of the Live Auction.

Want to lend a hand? We still need volunteers to help out during the event. Please sign up to volunteer. Your help is much appreciated!


The Silent Auction opened officially this past Saturday and will continue until Sunday, May 7 at 8:00 p.m. Just go to to register and start bidding.  You’ll find more than 200 items, including vacation homes, brand-new tech devices and computer help, home-baked treats, original works of art, one-of-a-kind experiences, restaurant gift certificates, elaborate dinners and brunches, gardening services, cultural events, handmade accessories, and much more.  Items are still being added, so keep checking!  These items are available for online bidding only, so you must register with your credit card information on the site.   During the Silent Auction, be sure to visit the Bidding for Good website often to see how your donations are doing and whether your own bids are still winning. (You can sign up for automatic email notifications.)


The Raffle will consist of two grand prizes:

  • A $250 gift certificate for the Celebrity Series (good for any show!) along with a $100 gift certificate toward dinner at The Westland.
  • A tour of the Belmont Farmers’ Market (for 4) together with a surprise gift basket and a $150 gift certificate, which is good for any of the vendors.

Raffle tickets are available at (Just click on “order tickets”) as well as during the evening of the Live Auction: $5 for one; $20 for 5; and $35 for 10—what a bargain! You can also buy them at Coffee Hour.   This is a great way to support the auction fundraising effort and participate in the excitement if you can’t be there the night of. The drawing will be on May 6. You need not be present to win the Raffle.
