The Oswego County Historical Society will host the 31st Annual “Not So Silent Auction” from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, April 6 at The American Foundry at 246 W. Seneca St. in Oswego. Tickets are $20 and will be available for purchase in advance from committee members and at the door the day of the event.
The silent auction committee members have been diligently seeking support for this year’s event. All proceeds will go to the operational support and maintenance projects of the society’s historic Richardson-Bates House Museum.
A special addition to the silent and live auction portions is an antique appraisal opportunity. Every ticket will include one free antique appraisal by Gerald Petro of Iroquois Auctions. Additional appraisals after the first free one will be $5 each.
A traditional Chinese auction will be featured again with chances to win one of a dozen unique themed-filled gift baskets.
Anyone wishing to be a sponsor, make a donation of quality items in support of the auction, or would like to purchase tickets in advance, may call the museum at 315-343-1342 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
