Be sure to check out the Menomonee Falls Neighborhood Watch's annual Silent Auction. This is the largest fundraiser the organization holds each year, and the proceeds are used to promote and foster a safe community for all.
This year the event is returning to their “home-grounds,” Saturday, Sept. 7 at The Trysting Place on Appleton Avenue at Good Hope Road. Registration and bidding begins at 10 a.m. and closes promptly at 2 p.m.
As a convenience, the winners will be notified at the close of bidding and will be able to pick their items up after 2:30 P. M. at the registration table.
Trysting Place owner, Sal Zizzo, invited the group back since there will be no centrally located Safety Fair this year. Sal has been a staunch supporter of Menomonee Falls and many of the village’s organizations, including Neighborhood Watch.
Available for bidding are many certificates to local eateries and businesses. Bidders will also see tickets to the Bucks, Brewers and Admirals. Sports memorabilia includes an autographed Packers football. The organizers promise us there will be plenty of items and various services for all tastes. Several wine baskets have been recently added to prove it.
Several golf packages have recently been added, including one in Door County at The Cherry Hills Golf Resort. Items continue to be added daily, and will be right up to the date of the auction. Other recent acquisitions going up for bid include two large and impressive S.C. Johnson Company Sample Baskets, which were a hot item last year. A Georgia O’Keefe print will be available, as will be the popular jar packed with “who knows how much” cash from Cornerstone Community Bank.
