Break the Anchor Fundraising Auction


It’s all hands on deck here at the Apprenticeshop as we prepare for apprentice João Bentes’s fundraising auction for Break the Anchor. For those of you who aren’t in the know, Break the Anchor is João’s project to build a traditional Portuguese sardine carrier at the Apprenticeshop and sail it across the Atlantic to Portugal. 


Apprentice and Break The Anchor Founder João Bentes, hard at work.

The fundraiser features handmade pieces from local artisans and apprentices, which will be displayed on the second floor of the shop for silent auction. During the silent auction, guests can jam out to some awesome live music from the By The Bay Trio. Once the silent auction portion of the evening is over, our auctioneer will begin the main event – a live auction of a Susan Skiff built here at the Shop by João himself!

Some of the handmade items that will be up for auction on Thursday.

Come by to say hi and enjoy some delicious food and beverages while you peruse the array of lovely handmade items that have been so generously donated to Break the Anchor. The entire Apprenticeshop community will be present, so it’s a wonderful excuse to have some fun on your Thursday evening and come catch up with all of us here in Rockland.

See you this Thursday night at 6:00 PM!
