The event will feature a silent auction, a champagne reception, a chef’s dinner, the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra musicians led by Conductor Arie Lipsky and a lively not-so-silent auction.

Donate or bid on unique items like the back-by-popular-demand A2SO Trio dinner, charming themed-baskets of goodies, unique trips and experiences, and many other exciting one-of-a-kind packages. Online bidding is currently under way.

The proceeds generated by this event go to the A2SO’s education and artistic programs that serve over 30,000 children through 50 ensembles in our schools, two youth concerts, dozens of Instrument Petting Zoos and 15 free KinderConcerts for toddlers.

Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013. 6 p.m. $175. To make a reservation or a tax-deductible monetary or in-kind donation contact the A2SO office at 734-994-4801 or go to 220 E. Huron, Suite 470, Ann Arbor. Barton Hills is located at 730 Country Club Road, Ann Arbor. 734-663-8511.
