There will also be gifts donated by downtown merchants, who generously provide to the auction every year, Turgeon said.

Turgeon said she expects the event, which will feature both silent and live auctions as well as a raffle, to be a raucous, but good-natured affair.

“I think it’s a really fun night out,” she said. “Some people hesitate to go to these things because they don’t necessarily want to spend the money, but it does turn into a really fun night out. People are friendly bidders — they’re fun about it.”

Starting tomorrow, all of the prizes will be posted online at www.newburyportef.org/auction. Tickets to the auction, which will feature a cash bar and complimentary appetizers, are $20 in advance, $30 the day of the event. In addition, raffle tickets for the chance to win a choice of a Kindle Fire, iPad2 or iPhone 5 are also on sale for $5 each or five for $20. Tickets as well as more information are available online.
