Yes, I know that’s a cryptic title, but this is a unique fundraiser, described below. If you’re a fan of Antiques Roadshow, this is your opportunity to find out that you might not need to play the lottery anymore, and you can help the local Forgotten Cats organization and The Gallery School of Pottstown at the same time.
Ever wondered if there might be treasure in your attic? Join us on Thursday, September 23 for an antique appraisal event and find out! This evening is a joint fundraiser for the Gallery School’s scholarship fund and Forgotten Cats, a local group dedicated to helping many of the stray and abandoned cats in our neighborhoods. Eileen Rhoads, of Rhoads Auction and Antiques, is generously donating her time and expertise for this event.
The event runs from 6:00-8:30pm at the Gallery on High, 254 High St. There is a $10 entrance fee, which entitles you to one free appraisal. Each additional appraisal is $5, with a maximum of 4 total items appraised per person. Light refreshments will be served.
Please RSVP to 610-326-2506 or by email.
We hope to see you there!

(As an aside… I’m posting this from Smith Family Plaza, right in front of Borough Hall, where there’s free WiFi! I’ve been tooling around Memorial Park on a free bike from Bike Pottstown & Tri-County Bicycles. I’m about to try to find some dirt bike paths in Riverfront Park that some kids told me about over in Memorial Park. )
