Friends Offers U.S. Open Tickets to Public

Friends of Gwinnett County Senior Services (Friends) will be offering U.S. Open tickets to the public on Thursday, July 30 at their seventh annual Silent Auction. All proceeds will benefit the Gwinnett County seniors.

This spectacular event will be held at Delmar Gardens, 3100 Club Drive in Lawrenceville from 6:00pm to 8:30pm. The theme for this year’s auction is the “Roaring 20’s” and will feature other items such as AirTran roundtrip airline tickets, featured attractions, entertainment packages, stay at King & Prince Golf & Tennis Resort on St. Simons Island, and fabulous Ritz-Carlton Lodge on Lake Oconee.

Friends is a private volunteer governed nonprofit organization. The organization’s fundraising efforts have resulted in emergency assistance, home repair, food baskets, dental, medical health and wellness screenings to benefit the senior citizens of Gwinnett. Friends has also met budget shortfalls by supporting 133,825 meals and nutritional dietary supplement drinks for the older population.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Ticket price includes admittance to the event, entertainment, food and beverages, a door prize ticket and participation in the silent and live auction.
