A penny social is a benefit auction with a raffle twist to raise funds. Donated items are raffled off with the items being displayed on tables with a container placed near the items you wish to win. There will be home made and hand-crafted items, as well as extra-special items.
There will be a trivia game about the history of our island, so be sure to brush up on your knowledge by visiting the Historical Society’s museum on the corner of Park Avenue and Banyan Street, or visit their web site at bocagrandehistoricalsociety.com.
