GREENVILLE — The Greenville Chamber will be “Puttin’ on the Ritz” next week, during the Annual Auction for Teacher Grants.

The event offers shoppers a chance to make a bid on some unique items, while supporting local education efforts.

The auction is scheduled for 5 p.m. Saturday, July 13 at the Fletcher Warren Civic Center in Greenville. Those attending will be able to enjoy a sit down dinner with celebrity waiters and will have a chance to bid on dozens of items.

The list of items was still being compiled as of Tuesday. In the past the items up for bid have included tools, sports memorabilia and tickets, artwork, and passes to SeaWorld, Fiesta Texas and the State Fair of Texas, hot air balloon rides or a chance to ride with the Hunt County Sheriff’s Posse.

Donations are still being accepted for the auction. A portion of the proceeds raised by the auction goes to provide grants to assist Greenville teachers.

Those wanting more information can call the Chamber at 903-455-1510.
