Our 17th Annual Amateur Chef’s Night is almost here! On Thursday, February 5, 2015 from 6:30 to 8:30pm, the Community Preservation Committee’s (CPC’s) signature fundraising event returns to Sacred Heart. What a great opportunity to eat, drink and be merry with friends and family, all while supporting the Willard Chapel.
What makes this food-and fun-fund raiser so special is the hearty participation of many chefs we know and love from our own community. Our friendly chefs will prepare and serve appetizers, soups, and desserts with a side of cheery banter! A carving station, with beer tasting by Budweiser joining long-time supporter Dr. Frank for wine tasting, rounds out the fare for the evening. A silent auction of quality goods and services adds a dash of excitement too! There will be ample informal seating for everyone.
Tickets for Chef’s Night are a $40 donation per person and are available at the Willard Chapel office, 17 Nelson Street Auburn. Stop by anytime we’re open Tuesdays through Fridays, 10am-4pm. All proceeds will benefit the CPC and the Willard Memorial Chapel.

Dec. 20th – Bob Sima Concert – Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn. When Bob Sima opens his mouth to sing what comes out is far beyond the human sounds of a warm and soulful voice. Beyond the songs, beyond the voice, beyond the stories. Yes…there’s more. A lesson, a nudge, a reminder, of the simple splendor of this place and these experiences we all share. The unique beauty is his presentation of these ancient messages – the conversations he has with the master teachers of the universe – in music that lives and breathes across generations. Bob has been called “Eckhart Tolle with a guitar” and his music truly heals and expands the heart. What draws you in is his ability to share these insights in a way that grabs your listening ear, inspires your beating heart, awakens your inner spirit, and transforms your most intimate desires. He is a poet, observer, scribe, and healer – all divinely bundled as a singing, songwriting transformative energy. His gift of music is a magnifying glass to the soul, each song sincere and worth repeating for a lifetime. The seemingly casual fashion that Bob makes his guitar speak is not coincidentally right in rhythm with all of the toes tapping, tears dripping, and hands clapping in the room. Bob truly moves his audiences – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Tickets $15, 8pm. www.auburnpublictheater.org 315-253-6669
