This year’s Auction in the Village will feature live and silent auctions, catering by Ciesco Catering Company, and live auctioneer Dave Barger.  Wine, beer, cider and sparkling water will be served.

The Silent Auction, between 5 and 7 PM, will include local restaurant gift certificates, accessories for the home and garden, a Michael Kors handbag, yoga sessions, ceramics, a YETI Hopper Flip 8 cooler, theater passes, museum tickets, wines and liquors, books and more.

The Live Auction, beginning at 7:15 PM sharp, includes exciting opportunities in travel, dining, and home embellishment.  The travel section features a week’s stay in Mas des Arcs, a private nineteenth-century five-bedroom stone farmhouse located in Vaison-la-Romaine, a first-century Roman town in the south of France accessible to the towns of Orange, Arles, and Avignon.  The town is famous for its rich Roman ruins, medieval town and cathedral providing the possibility to see antique, medieval and modern towns—2,000 years of history—within the same environment.

In addition, there is a dinner for four at the landmark Falls Village Inn and a three-night stay in a private renovated Brooklyn brownstone in Carroll Gardens that is paired with an eye-opening six-hour walking tour with Real New York Tours.  There is also a two-hour sunset sail cruise in New York Harbor with fresh sushi and sake pairings selected by Iron Chef Morimoto.

For the home there will be a stone planter by local stone mason Steve Fitch and a home entertainment package featuring an Apple HomePod and a $150 Apple gift certificate.
