Third Place Commons is the heart of the community in the north end. What better time to show your love than on Valentine’s Day at our annual fundraising breakfast? Tickets are only $40 each, or you can host table of 8 for $300. Every dollar raised supports our programs, over 800 every year, all free to the public.
The event starts at 7 a.m., and ends well before 8:30 so our guests can get to work. Yes, it is early, but great fun, with music, delicious food from the Honey Bear (can you spell bacon?) and Great Harvest Bread Company, and lively commentary from M.C. Alan Schauffler.
And we’ve got you covered just in case you need a last minute gift for your valentine. Auction items this year include a Lover’s Basket, complete with wine, chocolate, dinner at the Lake Forest Bar and Grill, and a tango lesson for two. Are you and your beloved missing the LFP Farmers Market? We have a picnic basket full of market goodies to tide you over until opening day in May. Bird lovers will enjoy a new feeder and seed from Wild Birds Unlimited, avian-inspired artwork from the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council, and the chance to have Tony Angell answer all your questions about birds and art over coffee. Eager gardeners can bid on a consultation from Cottage Garden Designs and get a jump on the season with tools from Town Center Hardware. Last but not least is a book lover’s basket, filled with surprises from Third Place Books.
Tickets for the breakfast are available at Third Place Books, and online at www.thirdplacecommons.org. Won’t you be our valentine on February 14th?
