Also, we will carry a special batch of Thanksgiving baskets and ‘Lucky Turkey’ mugs full of chocolate. Speaking of delicious food, we’ll be offering plenty of baked goods made at the homes of our dedicated volunteers — one of them, Alyssa, about whom you can read a story below, is a professional baker and will offer a myriad of colorful sweets for you to enjoy at the mansion or to take home.
We have two more big-time surprises for you: First, a room in the mansion will be filled with lit-up Department 56 North Pole houses, all on sale for half price. The soundtrack? Live jazz music played by the Lincoln Traditional Jazz Band, and Celtic songs played by harpist Jaimee Joroff. Second, we’ll have a spinning wheel in the tent, ready to test your good fortune (and ours!), with background Holiday songs played by a professional DJ.
I can’t wait to see you all there and celebrate the Holidays with you. Please come say hi and support our wonderful cause. I’ll be waiting for you, beaming, with such exciting activities and among the best people.
