Close to 200 guests packed the function rooms at the Run of the Mill Pub & Brewery in Saco tonight for the second annual Community Bicycle Center "Building Bikes, Building Futures" silent auction. In fact, so many people showed up for the party, guests overflowed into the restaurant's lobby and waiting area, leaving little room for dining room patrons or wait staff.
The Community Bicycle Center is well loved in the community, so it's no surprise so many would come out on rainy night to support it. And they weren't disappointed.
Auction items included biking gear, jewelry and restaurant gift certificates, along with a striking collection of original art by local artists.
Twenty-five works of art framed in silver bike wheels were tonight's signature auction items. More than 20 artists donated their time and talent to the Bike Wheels project.
If you want to learn more about this youth development organization and see party snapshots of the people who support it, be sure to pick up the Nov. 20 edition of the Maine Sunday Telegram and check out the Scene & Heard section.
Until then, I hope to see you out and about.Tweet
