See you at the MBC Annual Gala this Saturday, December 1

The Gala is this Saturday, December 1, from 6 to 11:45 p.m.  The Rowing Games are on!... and may the odds be ever in your favor.

If you haven't sent in your RSVP, you can still attend and pay at the door. Here is your chance to get your photo taken in the photobooth, bid on great stuff in the silent and live auctionsm, and dance the night away to the DJ. And of course, there will be plenty to eat and drink.

We have some exciting live auction items set up in addition to a great selection in the silent auction!

Don't miss your chance to bid on the following items in the live auction:


  1. Beth’s Bodacious Brownies – this only comes once every six years! At the MBC 2006 Gala, there was multiple bidders before it settled in the three digits amount.
  2. Scone Basket by John Cavanaugh – this goes fast!
  3. A fine rowing shell bookcase from Susan Tietjen – your books will be in good hands.
  4. A Studio Tour of the TPT by Catlin Marlotte – a tour you won’t forget!
  5. A Ride on the Barge from Upper River Services – you can’t get any closer to the real thing.
  6. Dinner for Eight – always popular every year.
  7. Boat Club Rental – imagine having the boathouse all by yourself plus 198 of your friends!
  8. Fund-A-Single for Junior – The Junior rowing team needs a single. Betsy has reached the end of her competitive life - 15 years ago.
  9. Fund-A-Pair/Double – we need just a few more dollars to replace a damaged double!
