Possible Dreams Auction to Raise Money for Martha’s Vineyard Community Services

MARTHA’S VINEYARD – A major fundraiser will be held Sunday for Martha’s Vineyard Community Services, an organization which provides programs to assist families on the island.

The 39th annual Art Buchwald Possible Dreams Auction features more than 20 one of a kind items, including a trip to St. Lucia with a Caribbean themed meal prepared by a famous island chef.

“The Possible Dreams Auction is our largest fundraiser that provides financial support for otherwise unfunded programs or portions of programs,” said Jessica Rogers, the development associate and events coordinator for Martha’s Vineyard Community Services.

The auction is known for the unique items often offered by celebrities who frequent the island.

“We are an event that caters to everyone just like community services does,” Rogers said.

The event features something for everyone with raffles at different price points and admission is only $25.

New to this year’s auction is proxy bidding, which allows individuals to place bids on “live dreams” from afar if they are not able to make the event.

“Like community services we want to make sure that we are inclusive of everyone in our community and they can come and have a good time at our event and help raise money to support these great programs that we have here,” Rogers said.

MVCS is also looking for volunteers to help on the day of the event.

“We are definitely still recruiting volunteers to come help us out with different things like greeting guests as they come, helping check people in, selling raffle tickets, serving food options and all sorts of things,” Rogers said.

The auction takes place at the Winnetu Oceanside Resort in Katama.
