Join friends at the 31st annual auction to support the Ministry of Caring’s Emmanuel Dining Room. The event takes place at Barclays Bank on the Riverfront and includes cocktails and a buffet dinner as well as an evening of meeting and greeting. The auctions — both silent and live — offer some of the best values around for luxury items and other goods. A grand raffle to win $10,000 is a highlight of the event. Delectable and plentiful fare tops off the evening’s enjoyment. The Auction raises funds that help the Emmanuel Dining Room program meet the challenge of feeding 180,000 visitors annually at its three sites in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods in Wilmington and New Castle, Delaware.
