Annual Live Auction 2021

Many years ago, the annual PEA Holiday Auction started as a way for the retail members to showcase their merchandise to other members.  It has evolved over the years into a fun tradition with participation by both retailers and service-based businesses and allows members to learn more about what other member businesses have to offer, while giving us all a chance to get some of our own holiday shopping done.

This year’s auction is on December 16, during our regular business meeting.

It's A Wonderful Life!

It's A Wonderful Life!

It's a Wonderful Life!

It’s A Wonderful Life!

Christmas 2021 is the perfect time to celebrate how wonderful life is! The pandemic can be tamed (if everyone gets vaccinated and takes precautions), jobs are coming back, the economy is rebounding, there are good reasons for optimism.

In Bedford Falls, George Bailey’s life teeters on collapse. A man who has consistently given up his personal dreams to help others in his community, George is saved from despair and self-destruction by his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody, who shows George how he, George, has touched the life of others. Slowly, George begins to see how different life would be for his wife and family, and his community, if he had not been born.

Determined to live and face his punishment, George returns home to learn that the townspeople have rallied to save him. George is reminded that no man is a failure who has friends, and Clarence earns his wings.

This gift is a celebration of PEA’s theme this year that it takes a village, we are a village, and in many large and small ways we have saved each other. Times have been trying, but we have all come through them together.

The Auction Item

  • Gift certificate for two tickets to TheaterWorks that can be redeemed for any production. December’s production is It’s A Wonderful Life — call today to get tickets!
  • $100 gift certificate to Barcelona, the closest restaurant (Town & Country Village in Palo Alto) to TheaterWorks. Wonderful authentic Spanish cuisine!
  • An It’s A Wonderful Life tree ornament to remind you that it takes a village, and the village would not be the same without you.
