The Asylum in downtown Portland was packed tonight with more than 150 people who turned out to help the Fiddlehead Center for the Arts in Scarborough expand its programming. The center offers visual and performing arts and science classes for a wide range of groups, including preschoolers, home schoolers, after schoolers and even adults.
Known as the Captain to WBLM's Morning Show listeners, Herb Ivy conducted the party's live auction with help from board member Rob Edgerley.
When it came time to auction off a set of five nesting Shaker boxes, the Captain invited Erich Chase up on the stage to describe how he and his sister Anna Chase (who wasn't at the party) made the boxes. Erich,10, was poised and professional as he described how they carefully constructed the oval boxes from cherry wood.
After the last item was auctioned off, the talented Time Pilots rocked us back to the '80s with hits from Prince, Michael Jackson, Van Halen and many others.
Be sure to pick up the March 18 edition of the Maine Sunday Telegram, where I'll have more snapshots and details from the party.
Until then, I hope to see you out and about.Tweet
