"Treasures Under the Tent," a fundraiser for the Niagara History Center, returns Saturday, Aug. 18, with new auction items, fine food and beverages. "Treasures Under the Tent" will offer an outdoor dinner with new menu choices from Shamus Restaurant, as well as an auction with new items.
The event will run from 6-9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 18, within a giant party tent behind the Erie Canal Discovery Center, 24 Church St.
This lively event is open to everyone. Patrons also can enjoy ice cream from Lake Effect, wine from Flight of Five Winery, baked goods from Tater Cakes.
Auction items include adventure packages, local winery packages, home and auto repair packages, as well as packages for restaurants, museums, concerts, theaters and Buffalo Bills/Buffalo Sabres. Works will be auctioned off by local artists including Manning McCandish, Billie Pascoe, Jack DiMaggio, Jeff Watkins, Silvia Wruck, Pugbully Studio, Amanda Burchfield and Corkey Coates.
Both live and silent auctions offer a chance to win. Niagara County Sheriff James Voutour will lead the live auction.
Enjoy casual attire this year. Come in golf attire, or wear a suit - it's up to you. Music by the Heenan Brothers will entertain through the night.
This event is held to raise funds for educational programing for both youth and adults at all three Niagara History Center locations.
During the hours of the "Treasures" event, guests are welcome to explore the exhibits of art and artifacts in the Penney Gallery, located on the second floor of the Discovery Center. The Penney Gallery gathers inspiration and artifacts from the life of local philanthropist and collector Charles Rand Penney.
Tickets are $50 each or $350 for a table of eight. Call the History Center at 716-434-7433.
