Silent auction items for the the fundraiser

I'll be updating this post over the next couple of weeks with both photos and new listings, so please keep checking in.

Items for the silent auction on Oct. 11:
  • "Magnolia," a magnificent etching by artist Curtis Bartone (seen at right)
  • An off-season week's stay at a classic Tybee beach house owned by Scott Center at 18th Place and Butler -- it sleeps ten and has wrap-around porches on both levels. I rented it for a week in 2007 for a family reunion -- it's an extraordinary property. Advance and absentee bids starting at $1800 accepted for this one. Email Bill Dawers.
  • Gift certificate from Local 11ten, which has become one of the city's premier restaurants
  • Gift certificate from Eos, perhaps Savannah's hottest new restaurant

  • One of the "babies" (above) that lined the steps of the Jepson Center for the Arts in 2007 as part of Marcus Kenney's amazing exhibit
  • Three pen and ink works by Betsy Cain; best-known for her abstract work, these three pieces -- done with ink made by the artist herself from her uncle's black walnut tree -- are scenes of Ossabaw Island; the works will be auctioned separately but would be perfect for hanging together    
  • Gift certificate to Kasey's Gourmet Grille
  • Tickets to the Creative Minds lecture series sponsored by Savannah Country Day School
  • A tasting dinner for 4 at Cha-Bella

  • A signed copy of the book Snowbound and a signed 8"x10" print of "Emergence" (above) by photographer Lisa M. Robinson, whose work has been praised in publications like The New Yorker and The Wall Street Journal
  • 4 tickets to any Savannah Music Festival event
  • Gift certificate to Magnolia Spa 
  • A tile painting party at Starlight Pottery
  • A gift package that includes a gift certificate to A Whimsical Tea Cup on Abercorn
  • Two silver passes to the Savannah Film Festival
  • Gift certificate to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, opening this fall at Bay and Whitaker streets
  • A private tapas and paella dinner for 6
  • A new piece by artist Gerome Temple
