Last chance to bid in online auction
The Jamestown Chamber of Commerce's online auction closes at 5 p.m. tonight, Aug. 17. Place bids on items such as a handbag from Christina Originals, 14K gold and pearl necklace with matching bracelet from the Purple Door, a children's birthday party at the Jamestown Fire Station, or a wine tasting at Newport Vineyards. Other items include pictures of Jamestown landmarks, beauty products, pet grooming, and gift certificates to area restaurants. For the Jamestown enthusiast is a piece of steel from the old Jamestown Bridge.
Online bids will be the opening bid on Saturday, Aug. 19, at Night at the Windmill. If no one bids on an item at the event, the online bid is the winning bid. Proceeds from the auction benefit the Jamestown Historical Society and the Chamber Scholarship Fund.
Although not necessary to attend the event to be the winner, tickets are available at Conanicut Marina Ship's Store, Grapes & Gourmet, and the Purple Door. Tickets cost $65 for dinner and dessert from Slice of Heaven, ice cream from Spinnaker's Cafe, music by Forty Steps, and beer, wine and soda.
