Approximately 100 people celebrated Manitowoc’s Symphony Orchestra on Saturday, October 6th at the Jazz on the Lake event. The evening held a high end raffle, an oral auction, music and dancing to the Erin Krebs Combo, and messages from Board President Dr. Joseph Trader and Music Director Wayne Wildman. Guests snacked on heavy appetizers as auctioneer Zach Holzer engaged and encouraged them to generously bid on a wonderful collection of donated items including a week long stay at a North Carolina Beach House, a New York trip to see the Metropolitan Opera, and a 6 month membership to the Wellness center, including personal training sessions. After the raffle winners were announced, guests took to the dance floor and continued the evening with cocktails and conversation. Executive Director Peggy Pitz sent a message of gratitude for guests’ support, with a special note of thanks to the night’s sponsors Karen Steingraber and John Durbow. The Manitowoc Symphony Orchestra’s season officially kicks off this Saturday October 13th with a program in celebration of the completion of the Spirit of the Rivers project.
