On Friday, June 22, 2007 at 7 p.m. at the Adirondack Club in Franklin, Phil’s Phriends will be hosting its “4th Annual Loud Music/Silent Auction” to raise money for the PanMass Challenge and Jimmy Fund. As usual, we will offer hors d’oeuvres, two live bands, a silent auction, and a cash bar – all for $20. Tickets are available from team members. If you would like more information or would like to obtain tickets on-line, drop us an e-mail by clicking here.

Here is the current list of the silent auction items that will be available at the event:



7-10 day stay in a two bedroom/ two bath condominium in Gainey Ranch, Scottsdale, Arizona (http://www.gaineyranchca.com). This is a great place for two couples or a couple with children. You may have the use of our car during your stay if you so choose. Gainey Ranch is in central Scottsdale. It has pools, tennis, and gym. Unfortunately, the Country Club is private. Close to numerous other golf courses, Old Scottsdale and the surrounding mountains. Arizona State University and its cultural and athletic programs are 12 miles south. There are wonderful museums, four professional athletic teams and a dozen MLB spring training sites a short drive away. Scottsdale is 90+ minutes south of Sedona. In general the condominium is not available during school vacation although the Christmas to New Year’s break in 2007-2008 is available.
