2017 Crescen-Dough Auction

Posted on January 31, 2017

Transport yourself to Paris of the 19th Century and experience “The Music of the Night”. This annual event is Huntsville’s Original and BEST Auction. Since its inception our guests have raised over $3.6 million dollars in support of the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra!

Follow the Phantom to tables filled with: beautiful jewelry; fabulous trips; stunning art; gifts; and personal services. The Live Auction will be fast paced, entertaining and may even include a few surprises.

Remember that the IRS tax code allows that all items purchased over the Fair Market Value (FMV) can be deducted for the full amount above that value. So, buy the things that you love, support music in our community, and get a tax deduction. Everyone will go home feeling good!

Hoping to see you RAISE YOUR PADDLE in support of the HSO!

Dress is CASUAL. Theme music is provided by members of the HSO.

While you are “in Paris” have your photo made with the Phantom or Christine!
