Some dreams come in our sleep, others in the middle of the day, and for those who depend on Martha’s Vineyard Community Services throughout the year, dreams can continue to be realities, thanks to the 32nd annual Possible Dreams auction last night.


It’s been called the biggest event on the Vineyard social calendar, and the Possible Dreams Auction organizers found how to count just how big it had grown when a storm hovered over the lawns of Edgartown’s Harborside Inn on the first Monday in August last year.

August Auction Will Offer

Four Possible Golf Dreams

Champion golfer Ernie Els will headline the golf offerings at this year’s Possible Dreams Auction, the charitable fund-raising event that benefits Martha’s Vineyard Community Services.

The auction is scheduled for August 4 at Outerland in Edgartown.

Mr. Els is offering a private afternoon golf clinic for up to eight people at the Farm Neck Golf Club on Martha’s Vineyard island on August 18.


Community Services Hoped for More


Martha's Vineyard Community Services is taking stock after its most important fundraiser of the year, the Possible Dreams Auction, raised far less than last year's auction.

On Thursday afternoon, Community Services reported that $444,000 had been raised on Tuesday night, including sales from admissions and concessions. In 2006, the fundraiser brought in $810,000, providing a substantial part of the organization's budget.

Rain-Delayed Possible Dreams Raise $444,000


On Monday night, when people were meant to be gathered in the garden at the Harborside Inn in Edgartown for the Possible Dreams Auction, it poured rain and flashed lightning across the Island, vindicating the event's organizers and their decision to enact the auction's first rain date in its 29 year history.

Imagine sitting in the VIP suite at the Circuit de Catalunya racetrack in Barcelona on a sunny May day. As the Formula One race cars whiz by, you clink champagne flutes with your lucky guest and smile, thinking of the Michelin starred dinner that awaits you.
