Tickets are $20 and will be available for purchase at the door the day of the event.

Currently, the auction committee is organizing another fun event in support of the society’s Richardson-Bates House Museum headquarters.

“In addition to our live auction portion this year, a new activity will be an antique appraisal opportunity,” said Peg McKinstry, auction committee co-chair.

Every ticket will include one free antique appraisal by Gerald Petro of Iroquois Auctions.

Additional appraisals after the first free one will be $5 each.

All proceeds from this important event will support the 2015 Capital Campaign project needed to complete extensive repairs and full paint of the Richardson-Bates House Museum.

“The evening features a number of valuable items received from generous donors,” added McKinstry.”Each year brings a unique variety of things to bid on. Please mark your calendar and bring a friend.”

Anyone wishing to make a donation of quality items in support of the auction, or who would like purchase tickets in advance, may call the museum at 343-1342.
