Items valued at more than $20,000 will be put up for bid at the sixth annual North Tonawanda Catholic School's "Promenade Down and Bid Just Right" auction Friday in Monsignor Szabo Hall, 381 Vandervoort St.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m., with tickets priced at $10. A dinner of "country-style vittles" will be served, included in the price of admission, with bids on home-baked apple pies opening the auction.
Children under 12 will not be admitted as bidders, although the eighth-grade class at the school has volunteered to showcase available items and take bids.
Autographed books and photos, a limited-edition carousel print by Laurel D'Agnillo, tickets to a Bisons game, a tour of radio station ALICE and tickets for tourist attractions will be auctioned. A Chinese auction of theme baskets selected by the faculty at each grade level will be included. Themes include a money tree, sports and Halloween. An official semipro hockey jersey autographed by Rob Ray will also be available.
About 280 children attend the school.
