The “Taste of the Spencer” continues to be the toast of the town as patrons, friends and supporters from near and far indulge their senses, Spencer style! Elegance, opulence, festive feelings and fun are the night’s operative words! The multi-tiered event includes gourmet food tastings, generous pours of wine, and the auction of fine items from throughout the country and beyond – all gathered in support of the 20-year-old theater, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) public charitable organization that perseveres in its mission to help expand the cultural horizons of residents & visitors in New Mexico. Taking place on both levels of the Spencer’s Crystal Lobby, patrons are invited to enjoy savory samplings at various catering stations and indulge in red and white wines as they bid on a variety of silent auction items. The party is then moved to the stage where table service of desserts, coffee and drinks commences with the rapid-fire live auction of desirable trips and exclusive services. Steered by the celebrated auctioneer Steve Talbot, this is the Taste’s high-energy point, the theatrical stretch of generous pledges, bids and winning purchases. Hot ticket auction items include package journeys to dreamy locales around the globe; outdoor adventures & sporting events, old world experiences and high tech scenarios. Closer to home, patrons may bid on fine art, wine & spirits, bed & breakfast stays, golf memberships and games, home furnishings, auto care, landscaping, salon and spa treatments, fishing and hunting packages – and so much more! We promise something for everyone! Details will emerge as theater staff and patrons gather the 200+ auction items. Based on past events, we know that many of the gifts will be spectacular, one-of-a-kind items and experiences. Auction donations are now being accepted and will be through the month of May. (We will accept, with discretion, anything of recognized value).
