Sunday Opens (6/12/16)

By Dave Fratello | June 12th, 2016

Welcome to Fundraising Weekend.

The Manhattan Wine Auction is the granddaddy of them all, but Sunday's Parents Softball Classic makes for a busy day, too.

The Wine Auction raises funds for MBEF, while Sunday's softball tourney raises money for MBX, the athletic foundation supporting sports in MB schools. (Dave's helping out with – and playing in – this weekend's tourney.) Watch for coverage of both on DigMB.com.

Meantime, enjoy this weekend's open-house video and our list of homes on tour. Of necessity, we're only able to publish the official descriptions for this week's listings – to make sure you get it all in time. Enjoy our video below and go see some great listings!
