Best of Milton Auction and Party set for Sept. 21
The Milton Historical Society’s eighth annual Best of Milton Auction and Party will be held from 4 to 7 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Milton Fire Hall, 116 Front St. in downtown Milton.
While shopping during the four silent auctions, guests can enjoy live music performed by piano and saxophone duo Vincent Varrassi and Ken Cicerale. Hors d’oeuvres and libations will be available while patrons browse through hundreds of items including antiques, artwork, beauty packages, collectibles, home and garden services, palate treats and excursion packages on land, in a boat or in the air.
At 7 p.m., auctioneer Richard Bryan will raise the gavel to begin the live auction. Guests will be enticed to bid on an airplane ride in a vintage aircraft, a four-digit license tag, a Baltimore Symphony overnight package with accommodation at a luxury hotel, a pedal car donated by I.G. Burton, a ride in the Milton Fire Company’s restored 1926 American La France fire truck and a dozen fresh eggs from Gladys Wilkins’ famous banty hens.
Also part of the live auction, Sam Calagione, founder and president of Dogfish Head Brewery, has offered to lead a personalized brewery tour available to the highest bidder.
This event, the largest fundraiser for the Milton Historical Society, helps fund the museum’s educational and public programs. Admission is $15 at the door. For more information, call 302-684-1010 or visit www.historicmilton.org.
