EOH Auction logo copyYou are invited to join your friends and neighbors and fellow patrons of the arts on Friday, October 16th at the Colgate Inn for a silent auction to benefit the Opera House. Enjoy complimentary wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres generously provided by the Colgate Inn, listen to the incomparable piano stylings of Tony award-winning Dianne Adams McDowell, and bid on artwork, local crafts, food, trips, antiques, and services from babysitting to legal counsel, all donated by friends of the Opera House.

For more than 40 years, Earlville Opera House has been a mecca for arts and entertainment in rural central New York. Housed in a restored, historic, late-19th-century structure on Main Street in the Village of Earlville, the Opera House offers classes for children and adults; exhibits the work of local, regional and national artists; and stages performances ranging from community theater to nationally renowned musicians.

There is over $11,000 in auction items to bid on this year!! Here are some sample items to fire your enthusiasm:
· Golf for four from Seven Oaks Golf Course (including cart!)
· Portrait photography session from Vantine Imaging
· Family four-pack of zoo entry tickets from the Rosamond Gifford Zoo
· Four tickets to the Claire Lynch Band holiday concert
· Private screening of a film of your choice from Hamilton Movie Theater
…and much, much more!

Idle and abandoned for more than two decades before it was saved from demolition in 1971, the Opera House has been rehabilitated and sustained through volunteer effort and the generosity of EOH members and friends. This support has enabled it to become a beacon for the arts in our community.
