The Barren River Area Safe Space is holding its "Freedom from Violence" Live Auction and Dessert Fair on Thursday, August 2nd.
The event is from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall at 911 Searcy Way.
Tickets are $10 for one, or $15 for two.
The live auction is somewhat different than most auctions, allowing you to bid on an entire room. If you bid the highest, you win everything within the room.
Some of the rooms the auction will have set up are a "Queen's Court," "King's Court," "Boys Will be Boys," "Barbie Dream Corner," "Wine and Dine," "Loving your Lawn," and the "Family Fun" room, among others.
The auction is set up to auction off rooms, rather than individual items, since the organization runs a shelter for those in a domestic violence relationship. The auction is intended to reflect rooms you would see in a home.
The shelter is a place where those that have been abused can turn for safety and help.
There will also be several silent auctions going on at the "Freedom from Violence" event, as well as a dessert fair.
Some of the items, among others, up for auction include the following:
2 passes to play a round of golf at Olde Stone
Lexington Legends baseball tickets
Cincinnati Reds tickets
Louisville Bats tickets
Twin bed with trundle and mattress
Express Tan certificate
Wine Rack/Wine glasses/Wine
Signed WBKO weather radio
Beech Bend passes
Holiday World passes
Surround Sound Center (valued at $1500 dollars)
2 Total Fitness Memberships
Bloom gift certificate
Dukes Sporting Goods soccer ball
Manicure & Haircut from Salon Panache
Gift basket from Regina Webb Salon & Spa
2 General Jackson Cruise Tickets
Vince Young Rookie of the Year Collector Football
All proceeds from the auction and dessert fair will go toward BRASS and the domestic violence shelter.
