Discount tickets extended for Auction Gala event


The Eagle-Tribune

---- — The Team Haverhill organization has extended its discount for tickets to its All Aboard Auction Gala for an additional week.

Early bird tickets can be purchased for $40 each at www.teamhaverhill.org until midnight on Friday. Starting Saturday, tickets are $50 each, while available. The Auction Gala is Nov. 16 at the Haverhill Country Club, 58 Brickett Lane. Doors open at 6 p.m.

This event will feature a live and silent auction to help Team Haverhill meet its goal of raising $25,000 to match Pentucket Bank’s $25,000 contribution towards the Art Walk at the Bradford Rail Trail. With Matt Noyes as the auctioneer, the money raised will allow Team Haverhill to commission the Art Walk, in partnership with Pentucket Bank. The Art Walk will feature several large, permanent sculptures and several smaller sculptures that will likely rotate.

The Auction Gala, also sponsored by Pentucket Bank, will include a dinner and live entertainment by members of Spotlight Playhouse. For more information, visit online at www.teamhaverhill.org or email artwalkbrt@teamhaverhill.org.
