We are less than one month away for the 5th Annual Holiday Auction & Tastes of Milford and silent and live auction items are rolling in…literally.
i.g.Burton donated a child’s Mercedes-Benz Pedal Car. The value is over two-hundred dollars and is very cute. This pedal car would make a perfect holiday gift for your little one. All it’s missing is a bow. It will be one of the items featured in the live auction part of the event.
Other items that will be auctioned off live, by 5th Year Auctioneer Dave Wilson, are weekend getaways and certificates good for an opportunity to be a Host-DJ on the Eagle 97.7 Morning Show with Petch & Paula, and another opportunity to co-host the Cool 101.3 Morning Show with Dana McDonald.
Delmarva Broadcasting General Manager Mike Kazala says they don’t even sell packages to co-host either morning show, that you can’t put a price on the value of co-hosting a show with Petch & Paula or Dana. He says the exposure is phenomenal.
Some of the silent auction items include his and her designer sunglasses donated by Halpern Eye Care, gift cards from the Georgia House and LeLoLi Café & Espresso Bar,
High end apparel, beauty products, gifts for your pets and several gift baskets and gift cards from area businesses.
