Sports tickets, crystal tableware, KitchenAid® products, unique art, and collectibles, and gift cards are just some of the 203 items that will be up for bids from July 15–July 30 until 1 p.m.

The Annie’s G.A.L.A. (Garst Alternative to the Live Auction) inside Garst Museum is a FUNdraiser. You can begin the fun with bidding on various items in person or by phone in a Silent Auction at Garst over a two-week time frame, buying Target Raffle tickets, purchasing 50/50 Drawing tickets ($250 minimum prize payout), and picking—and popping—a balloon with each one having a prize.

The traditional Silent Auction, with many unique items, starts Saturday, July 15, and ends Sunday, July 30, at 1 p.m. There’s lots of time for you to go in Garst and mark your bids, or you can call 937-548-5250 to get a bid number and leave your bid.

Up for grabs are 203 items that include antiques, collectibles, wine, potential wedding gifts, art, sports tickets, and restaurant gift cards, and so much more.

Winners can claim their items from 3 p.m.–4:00 p.m. on July 30 or during the following week.

From July 15 until the close of the auction, you can purchase balloons from the Balloon Tree for $5 apiece, with each balloon holding a mystery prize, including gift cards up to $25, Museum Store t-shirts of your choice, Museum Store discounts up to 50%, and Museum Store gift certificates up to $20.

Target Raffles let you choose the items you want to take a chance on, but instead of bidding, you drop a raffle ticket with your bid number in the box by the item. Raffle tickets are priced at 6/$5, 15/$10, 35/$20, 45/$25, or 100/$50.

The G.A.L.A. will include a 50/50 Drawing with a minimum prize of $250. Chances are $5 each or 6/$25, and tickets are available now! Tickets will be sold until the drawing halfway through the big free concert Saturday night at the Gathering at Garst, when the winner (need not be present) will be announced.

Call or stop by Garst Museum (937.548.5250, 205 North Broadway in Greenville, OH) to see the Silent Auction items, buy raffle tickets for your choices in the Target Raffle, buy a balloon to win assorted prizes, or take a chance on the 50/50 Raffle with cash, check or credit card.
