A dinner, party, and silent auction at Ashawagh Hall in Springs on Wednesday will raise money to help Tim Lee, a Springs photographer and party lighting designer who has been undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer.
The 6 to 11 p.m. event will include performances by Nancy Atlas and Friends, Matt Dauch and other members of the band Little Head Thinks, Bobbi Terzi, and drummers from the Bastards of Boom. Keith Leaf, a fire juggler, will also perform, as will Evan Thomas and members of his fire-juggling troupe, the Fiery Sensations.
A silent auction will offer artwork, including a hand-carved, hand-painted sculpture by Randall Rosenthal, as well as pieces by other local artists, and numerous antiques, among them a pair of hand-carved Chinese doors and a Tibetan altar hanging.
An art exhibit will be placed in the hall, and Mr. Lee, who is also an antiques dealer, will have some of his wares for sale.
Community members will bring potluck dishes to share, and there will be wine donated by Trish Franey of Springs Wines and Liquors. A $20 donation will be requested at the door.
