Bay Street Theater is hosting a Holiday Silent Auction that begins Sunday, November 21, and continues through Thursday, December 2. Items will be available for bidding 24 hours a day, each day, by visiting the auction link at baystreet.org. Registration is required. For more information, contact Director of Development Kim Fink at kim@baystreet.org.

The silent auction is being organized in place of the in-person auction that Bay Street typically holds during its annual summer gala. Going into the gift-giving season, the auction provides Bay Street audiences an opportunity to purchase some truly unique items and experiences for themselves, their families and friends, while also having a fun and exciting way to support the theater and the performing arts.

“I love this event each year,” says the theater’s executive director, Tracy Mitchell. “This silent auction allows donors to check items off their gift-giving list and support a local nonprofit all with a quick click of a button. And they don’t even have to worry about delivery times.”

One-of-a-kind collectible items, experiences, and travel packages have been provided by a long list of donors, including local businesses and top-name celebrities. This year, bidders will have an opportunity to win items such as autographed memorabilia by Julie Andrews, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Jerry Seinfeld and Colin Quinn; a week-long trip for four to St. Barths; a one-on-one Zoom session with Isaac Mizrahi; gift baskets and gift certificates from local businesses such as Canio’s Books, In Home, and Citarella; one-of-a-kind experiences with celebrities and professionals such as Broadway star Kyle Barisich and Scott Schwartz; memberships to area museums and exercise studios; and private lessons and workshops focusing on acting, creative writing, fitness, and more.
