Senior Services auction to be held Sept. 8

The 7th annual Clermont Senior Services Art, Antiques, and Collectibles Auction will be held at Eastgate Receptions Sep. 8.

According to Executive Director George Brown, last year the auction raised more than $30,000 to support the work of Clermont Senior Services.

“The center includes such services as transportation, home care services, adult day care, meals on wheels, and other services designed to help older adults continue living at home,” Brown said.

The event will include dinner, a silent auction, and a live auction featuring the works of local artists as well as various antiques.

Brown said that the live auction, which features Batavia resident and nationally recognized auctioneer Joel Wilson, is always one of the evening’s highlights.

Linda Eppler, Director of Community Services, said that the purpose of the annual auction is two-fold.

“The goal of the auction is to educate the local community about the services we provide,” she said. “We also want to raise money to continue providing those services. We have a number of funding sources, private and public. We receive money from the senior services levy but we still want to do everything we can to try and raise money. The auction is a fun way to accomplish those goals.”

All of the money raised will benefit the programs of Clermont Senior Services, Inc.

The cost to attend is $35 and the dress is business casual. The silent auction will begin at 5 p.m., dinner will be served at 7, and the live auction follows at 8 p.m.
