“The nonprofits have the ability to sell tickets to the show on Thursday and Friday,” Kwiatek says. “For every ticket they sell, we donate $5 to them. So, in that way, it’s a fundraiser. There’s no risk. It’s just a nice partnership.”

PREVIEW GALA

An exciting night is in the cards for those attending the Lehigh Valley Auto Show’s annual preview gala, 6-10 p.m. Wednesday.

The evening begins at Stabler, where hors d’oeuvres, salads and other light fare will be available.

Then, at 7:15 p.m., the festivities move to Rauch Fieldhouse, where a larger food area will feature a carving station with brisket and other meats. The gala concludes at Goodman Hall, where coffee and desserts will be served.

“It’s like a movable feast,” Kwiatek says. “We go from site to site because the important thing is that we make sure we give opportunities for the guests to be in front of exhibitors.”

This year’s gala has a casino theme because the auto show is celebrating its 21st year (like blackjack).

Guests will play various games in Stabler and Rauch before trading in their chips for raffle tickets for prizes at Goodman Hall.

Entertainment includes WE3, a guitar and vocal trio, at Stabler; I’ll Be Frank, a Frank Sinatra tribute band, at Rauch; and musical duo Kato, featuring husband and wife Craig Kastelnik and Pat Flaherty, at Goodman Hall.

Tickets for the 21-and-over event are $100; $160 per couple. Free valet parking is available until 7 p.m.

Proceeds from the gala benefit the pediatric unit at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital and Northampton Community College. In the past eight years, the gala has raised $1.7 million for its partners, Kwiatek says.
