Jewelry, a quilt, and various themed baskets will be offered for auction March 10 at the Treasures of Time Antique Appraisals and Auction fundraiser.
The event will benefit Community Hospice of Carroll County and is the largest fundraiser for the organization. The auction and appraisal event will be held 1-4 p.m. at Atwood Lake Resort outside Dellroy. A unique combination of antique appraisals and silent and live auctions, the event is being sponsored largely by Thrivent for Lutherans and Ashton Preservation Association, both platinum donors.
Items included in the appraisal are a gold baguette ring valued at $800, an 18-inch strand of black pearls and a one-fourth carat diamond pendant, along with quilt lap throw, restaurant baskets, beauty baskets and more.
Tickets are $10 per person and are available at the Community Hospice of Carroll County office, Trump Rd., Carrollton; Browse ‘N Buy Store, 2nd St., Carrollton; Community Hospice office in New Philadelphia or from a Carroll County hospice volunteer.
Each paid admission entitles the purchaser to one appraisal. The silent auction will be open from 1-2:30 p.m. and the live auction will begin at 3 p.m. Paid admission is not required for the live auction.
