Corinthian Yacht Club, Marblehead
Now celebrating its 20th Anniversary, the Hospice Auction and Regatta to benefit Care Dimensions, formerly Hospice of the North Shore & Greater Boston, has become one of the most anticipated events of the season. Hosted by the Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead, this year’s events are scheduled to start Friday, June 13th with the Platinum Gala where we will pay tribute to the past leadership and generous donors whose contributions have made a significant impact on the community. The Platinum Gala will inlcude a dinner and live auction led by award-winning auctioneer, Paul Zekos. The live auction will feature an exciting array of impressive travel excursions, sports items and VIP experiences. The weekend of events continues on Sunday, June 15th with the Hospice Regatta, and ending with Family Barbecue and award ceremony that evening.
We are proud to announce that this year’s signature artwork is by Rockport native, artist T.M. Nicholas, whose original artwork entitled Summertime Gloucester will be auctioned during the live auction. Summertime Gloucester, is a 24x30 oil painting on canvas, created exclusively for Care Dimensions by the New England’s foremost painter of the Cape Ann School tradition. With magnificent colors and rich textures, Nicholas’ plein air painting depicts an iconic structure ~ the century old, Beacon Marine Basin ~ and comes alive with dockworkers approaching a vibrant green, fishing boat up for repairs. The original painting will be on display at Arnould Gallery and Framery in Marblehead in the weeks prior to the auction. Arnould Gallery will also be selling two sizes of canvas prints (8” X 10” and 16” X 24”).
Proceeds support the Care Dimensions’ mission to provide comprehensive and compassionate support for children and adults with advanced illness, death and loss. There are many ways for you to participate through event Sponsorship of the Hospice Dinner and Auction, the Hospice Regatta and the Major Trip Raffle, please contact Susan Rogers at 978/750-9357 for more information.
