Kick Up Your Boots at The Linsly Spring Soiree

WHEELING — Dust off your favorite boots, grab your blue jean jacket, and adjust your bow ties for the first annual Linsly Spring Soiree & Auction, Boots to Bow Ties, to be held at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 13 in the Pine Room at Oglebay Park. Sponsored by Aladdin, The Linsly Spring Soiree & Auction promises to be a fun evening with delicious food, live music from Better Daze, and fantastic auction items.

One of the newest auction items featured this year at Boots to Bow Ties fits the theme of the evening perfectly — a weekend get away for two to Music City, Nashville, Tennessee! This package will include airfare for two and accommodations for two nights at the Hilton Nashville Downtown, and a V.I.P. tour of the Gibson Guitar Studio.

From a luxury ski vacation for eight in a condo at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, to a vacation home in Reunion, Florida, to an overnight stay in a Treetop Vila and ziplining passes at Grand Vue Park, as well as a variety of themed silent auction baskets, there is something for everyone’s budget at the Linsly Spring Soiree & Auction. Other featured auction items include a privately catered three-course dinner for eight in the comfort of your own home by Linsly’s own Chef Noah Fraley from Aladdin, PNC Championship Club Steeler tickets for four and parking pass, Hyundai Club Pittsburgh Pirates Tickets, and a date night romance package at the Omni William Penn Hotel & Resort in Downtown Pittsburgh.

Lea Ridenhour, chief advancement officer at Linsly, explained that the new name and venue for Linsly’s annual fundraiser has breathed new life into this event.

“We are very excited about the Linsly Spring Soire & Auction,” said Ridenhour. “Our previous fundraising event, known as the Taste of Linsly, had a great run for almost seven years, and was very successful. But it was time for a change, and we believe the more casual tone and fun theme of the Spring Soiree & Auction, as well the new venue at the Pine Room will make for a fantastic evening.”

Ridenhour also said that this year’s event will include a diverse range of delicious food stations catered by event sponsor, Aladdin, as well as a special signature cocktail for the evening.

Attire for the evening is casual and fun! Ladies can wear anything from blue jeans, boots and bling to spring dresses and blue jean jackets. Gentleman can come comfortably in their jeans and blazers and may feel free to sport a bowtie for the evening.

“It’s going to be a great time,” said Ridenhour. “We want this event to be something that people look forward to every year. Whether you are a member of the Linsly community, or just looking for a fun evening out, everyone is welcome to join us.”
