Something For Everyone At Nov. 8 Library Dinner Auction

Something For Everyone At Nov. 8 Library Dinner Auction

Countdown has begun for the S.W. Smith “Silver Linings Dinner Cruise,” to be held Saturday, November 8 at the Star Hose Company firehall in Port Allegany. This year’s 25th annual event promises to feature cruise-themed fun and games for everyone, along with a multitude of prizes and auction items ranging from an iPad Mini to sports tickets.

Doors open at 4 p.m. Saturday, so “passengers can board the ship” and begin checking out the items on display for the bucket, silent and live auctions. It’s not too late to donate a gently used or new item, piece of local artwork, or service; items may be left at the library. Financial contributions are also welcome. All proceeds benefit library operating expenses.

Dinner, catered by the Port Freeze, begins at 7 p.m., with the live auction, conducted by Dan Carter Auctioneering, beginning at 8 p.m. For the convenience of bidders, for first time this year credit cards may be used to pay for auction purchases totaling more than $50.

Highlighted items in this year’s event are Pittsburgh Steelers, Penn State, and Buffalo Sabres tickets to be auctioned, as well as an iPad Mini and cover donated by Port Allegany Education Association, which auction-goers can “sink or swim” to win. In addition, three $100 prizes will be awarded (must be present to win). A photo booth will capture the evening’s memories, and as in previous years, the fun and games will be set to music by local deejay service Karizma.

A few tickets are still available at a cost of $30 each; for an additional $100 fee – just $10 more per person -- a “Captain’s Table” is available, which seats 10 individuals and includes two bottles of champagne. Tickets can be purchased at S.W. Smith Library, Port Freeze and Port Pharmacy.
