This year’s 15th annual Wayne County Humane Society Sweetheart Auction has an amazing array of items being offered include a guitar signed by the late rock legend Tom Petty and members of his band the Heartbreakers as well as a Star Wars 20th anniversary 11-by-14 photo signed by Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, George Lucas, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker. Society Executive Director Mark Plyter tells us they get no government help and rely on donations, fundraising and service fees to cover expenses.
The auction is Sunday, January 28th at the Palmyra VFW on Route 31. Viewing starts at Noon and the first silent auction item closes at 12:45 p.m., with more taking place every 20 minutes to 30 minutes. The live auction starts about 2 p.m.
