WILTON — The Wilton Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar announced this morning it will be auctioning off its interior decor through 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2 with proceeds going to charity.
Applebee's visitors will have the opportunity to bid on items including sports memorabilia, celebrity photographs and local Saratoga-themed collectibles.
Clearing its walls in preparation for an upcoming remodeling, the local Applebee's chose to auction its decor to benefit the Northeast N.Y. chapter of the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Known for dense decorations paying homage to local sports teams and favorite singers or actors, Applebee's hopes this weekend's auction will not only help support a good cause, but will also be an opportunity for community members to do a little Christmas shopping.
"The holidays are right around the corner and this auction allows our customers to take advantage of some early shopping, all while benefiting a deserving organization," said Stephanie Griffin, director of marketing for T.L. Cannon Companies, in a recent statement.
To place your bid on any of the various auction items, just go to the Wilton Applebee's before Sunday evening and make your big with the restaurant manager on-duty at that time. All items must be paid for with cash and the deadline to pick up and pay for your item ends at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3.
For more information call 583-2606.
The Wilton Applebee's is located off Route 50 north in Lowe's plaza.
