Islanders will have the opportunity to snap up some great deals at the upcoming live and silent auctions during Nassau County Council on Aging’s Sixth Annual Fall Gala. The gala has a Hawaiian theme and is set for Sunday October 11, from 5:30 – 9:30 PM at the Amelia Island Plantation. For $100, you’ll have cocktails, dinner and live entertainment by the Richard Stratton band. The auctions will feature art, boat trips, golf outings, vacation items, dinners, catered fishing trips and much more. Aaron Bean will be the auctioneer.

One item of interest is an oil painting called “Amelia River Sunset” by Georganna Mullis. She used oils to suggest the vibrant colors that are seen in the western sky at sunset. She states, “Of course this is only my interpretation of this view, so if you can’t find this exact tree and river spot, don’t worry – I may not be able to locate it either. My imagination gets the best of me sometimes.” She says in the right sun, colors change from dull grays and greens to vibrant reds, yellows and oranges with purple, violet and blue shadows. She is delighted to paint this for the Council on Aging to auction and hopes that whoever makes the purchase will enjoy having it in their home or business. Georganna’s studio is in the Blue Door Artists and she has a Web site under construction.

To get more information about the auction, call the Council on Aging at 904-261-0701 x 117.
