The Purple Rose Theatre Company is holding their 5th Annual Backyard BBQ benefit on Sunday July 23, from 4:00 - 9:00pm at the Chelsea Fairgrounds. The grand auction item up for bids during the BBQ (and online starting July 15th) will be a private show at your house from Jeff Daniels. Jeff will perform for 75 minutes and then take questions. It supports a great cause, the Purple Rose Theatre and, based on my experiences with him at WITL, a chance to be entertained and talk to one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet - in and out of Hollywood.

Plus, other auction items include props from the movie "Dumb and Dumber", which will undoubtedly occupy a revered spot in your basement bar. If you don't have a basement bar, you'll need to build one just to display something like that.

Here's the link to the Purple Rose Theatre Company. Good luck. If he comes to your house, have him play a song called "Mile 416".
