Tibbits Annual Auction billed as “a whole new game,” will be held live and in person Saturday, November 4, 2023 at the Tibbits Opera House. The annual fundraising event expands beyond the traditional auction audiences have known and loved for the past 43 years. This year Tibbits takes on “The Price is Right” game show theme and invites supporters to “Come on Down” to enjoy games and prizes in addition to the beloved live and silent auctions.  According to Andrew French, Tibbits Development Director, “It’s a night of fun and entertainment unlike anything experienced at the theatre before.” The traditional Live Auction will take place on stage featuring unique items, dinners, trips and experiences. The Silent Auction in the gallery will allow guests to place their bids on baskets and items, gift ideas or special treasures for themselves. Adding to the fun, the evening also features games like “Plinko,” “Punch-a-Bunch,” “Beat-the-Clock” and “Putt-Putt.” Contestants get chances to win game show prizes like gift cards, gift certificates and special items donated by local and regional businesses. There will even be travel trips in partnership with AmFund. Tibbits is seeking donations for the auction such as new items, experiences, themed baskets or gift certificate for services. Donations for the games may include gift cards and gift certificates. Cash sponsorships for the event are also welcome. To discuss a donation or arrange for pick up of a donated item, contact French at 517-278-6029. Games, food, and silent auction begin at 6pm. The live auction begins with a “Price is Right” game at 7pm and is followed by more games and silent auction bidding.  Admission is $10 per person and includes hors d’oeuvres and a ticket for the first game, or adult beverage. Additional game or beverage tickets will be $5 each. Auction raffle tickets offer a chance to win $1000, $250 or Tibbits Summer Theatre season ticket for $10 per ticket.
