The Wisconsin Rapids Community Theatre announces its annual themed event -- Celebrity Auction. The online auction begins Monday, June 18 and will run until August 10. Access the auction by clicking on the image or the link to the right. Items will be added weekly.
On August 16, WRCT will host a live and silent auction at their theatre in the Centralia Center. Tickets are available online for VIP perks during the live auction.
WRCT Executive Director Ellen Roeseler is organizing the event. “It all started with a donation from our friend Joe Bruener, who gave us costumes worn by Kathy Kinney in The Drew Carey Show. Kathy is from Stevens Point and went to college there with Joe. His generous donation sparked an idea – let’s celebrate the organizations and people that make Wisconsin a wonderful place to live! We’ve contacted other celebs with Wisconsin ties and are receiving items daily – Richard Riehle, Gena Rowlands, Bob Uecker, and Charlie Berens were the first to respond. We’ve contacted organizations from around the state and have received donations from Elkhart Lake, American Players Theatre, Bighorn Ranch, and the Copps organization. Local stars have added unique packages, and the excitement is ready to begin. The online auction will run through August 10, when we will pause for a breath before the big event – the live and silent auctions on August 16.”
