DERRY — The Upper Room, a Family Resource Center, invited guests to "Come Sail Away" during its recent auction/fundraiser event, held Nov. 1 at the Tupelo Music Hall.
Guests dressed as cruise ship guests and enjoyed music provided by "Band For Hire," silent auctions, and a live auction led by auctioneer Bill Burke.
Upper Room Executive Director Brenda Guggisberg said the event was "a beautiful display of community and compassion," and also thanked the Tupelo for being gracious hosts for the evening.
Guggisberg added there were more than 250 in attendance this year. The event featured live auction items including trips, sports packages and a live artist, Kady Messina, creating a picture on site to auction off. The artwork also funded the Anna Willis Scholarship Fund.
