Killington’s ‘Bachelor Auction’ to Benefit Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports
The Foundry at Summit Pond will once again play host to the ultimate Ladies’ Night Out on Sunday, March 30, as Killington’s annual Bachelor Auction returns for a second year, offering a very special evening of food and flirtatious fun, with proceeds to benefit Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports. Admission is $20, and attire is formal. The event opens at 8 p.m., with a cocktail reception and tasting menu, followed by live music and dancing. The highlight of the evening kicks off at 9 p.m., when some of Vermont’s most eligible bachelors hit the block for much-anticipated Bachelor Auction. Each gentleman offers bidders a deluxe Date Package, including dinner and a specially-designed activity or adventure. All the enticements are not limited to single ladies — there will be plenty of packages for everyone – single, married or committed – to bid on, including some luxurious spa and salon packages. This year, free shuttle transportation will be available between Table 24 in downtown Rutland and the Foundry in Killington. Guests can enjoy cocktails and appetizers at Table 24 starting at 6 p.m., while waiting for shuttle transportation; several trips will be made to be sure guests get up the mountain and back to Rutland safely.
The Killington Bachelor Auction was founded in 1995 by Cristin and Billy Morlock at the Bates Mansion in Cavendish,Vt. and has been held in the past at the Cortina Inn in Mendon and the Wobbly Barn. It has become a rite of passage for Killington’s most eligible gentlemen to participate in this event, and over the years many famous and infamous personalities have strutted their stuff on the auction block to help raise money for charities. The Foundry at Summit Pond is located on the Killington Road. For details, call 802-422-5335.
