DRESDEN — The Lincoln County Historical Association’s annual fundraiser dinner and auction of cakes by a veteran auctioneer, Kaja Veilleux of Thomaston Place Auction Galleries, is set for 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10.

The event will be held at Pownalborough Court House, 23 Court House Road, rain or shine.

Each cake is displayed in a “dance of desserts” by apron-clad volunteers who wind their way through the tables to encourage lively bidding.

LCHA’s party planners offer a catered three-course Italian dinner, guitar music by David Lawlor and Neil Lamb, and an auction of experiences. Bidders can win one of two vacations in Italy, a theater package, a fishing trip, a cooking class/dinner for six, a photographic portrait, and more.

Guests also may purchase raffle tickets for a wide variety of gift cards.
