Silent Auction News

The JTMF Fundraiser's Silent Auction has always been fun and exciting, filled with a terrific assortment of items from local merchants, manufacturers and businesses. In the past, we've had Carribean crusies; restaurant gift-certificates; massages; all sorts of gift baskets and even a few items donated by celebrities.

This year's auction is no exception. In fact, it promises to be even more exciting than ever before. Among the items already donated are: a gift basket from Discovery Toys of Bordentown, NJ; a signed original print from Shoppe 202; a wine basket from Silver Decoy Winery and two season tickets to the Kelsey Theatre's Summer Series, featuring shows from Shakespeare '70 and The Yardley Players.

In addition, this year we have managed to arrange for more celebrity donations than ever. Among them: a dress worn by MISS COCO PERU in the camp classic film Girls Will Be Girls; a "Desperate Housewives" gift package, donated by the show's creator, MARC CHERRY ; a CD of "The Night Before Christmas," narrated and signed by British comedian and V for Vendetta star, STEPHEN FRY; posters from the films Hook and Mrs. Doubtfire, autographed by their star, ROBIN WILLIAMS and an original, signed pen & ink drawing from a true American Icon, beloved comedienne CAROL BURNETT. And that's just the beginning. Donations are rolling in almost daily. There's sure to be something to delight you and undoubtedly something you simply must have. And you'll be supporting a good cause, too.

But the only way to bid on these goods is to attend the Fifth Annual James Tolin Memorial Fund AIDS fundraiser, featuring Charles Busch's Psycho Beach Party, Friday, June 22nd and Saturday June, 23rd, 2007. For more information or to order tickets, visit
