Every year the Ocracoke Festival (June 3-5 this year) hosts an art auction. The on-site live auction will take place this coming Friday, June 3rd, at the Berkley Manor starting at 7:00 pm. For those who want to get a jump start on bidding (or who can't make it to the event), Festival organizers are offering online bidding until 7 PM, Thursday, June 2. The highest online bid will become the starting bid for the on-site auction on Friday, June 3rd. If no one outbids you, you are the winner!
For photos of the art, an on-line bidding form, and more information, please visit the official Ocracoke Festival web site: http://www.ocracokealive.org/auction.html.
