The Clermont County Humane Society is gearing up for its most important fund-raising event of the year. The 14th annual auction will also mark the 50th anniversary of the humane society.
“This is our 14th annual auction, and the auction is our largest fund-raiser each year,” said board member Nadora Hill. “It will be held on Nov. 3 at Norlyn Manor in Batavia, and consists of a dinner and a live and silent auction.”
The auction, an annual event that generally attracts around 250 participants, will feature a dinner and two auctions of donated items, including hand-made crafts such as quilts or overnight getaway packages to nice hotels.
“There will probably be about 30 live auction items that will consist of sports memorabilia and fine jewelry and we normally have over 100 silent auction items that range from pet items to holiday items and gift certificates,” said Hill. “It’s $30 a person, which gets you the dinner and the ability to participate in both auctions.”
