Bogey Grille to host sixth annual MS silent auction


More than 230 items, including certificates to local restaurants, weekend getaways and vacations, will be up for bidding March 5 at the sixth annual National MS Awareness Week kickoff silent auction at Bogey Grille. The event is free and open to the public.

Since 2013, the auction has been supported by more than 200 area restaurants, merchants and entertainment providers, and has raised more than $90,000 to support programs and services for the more than 18,000 people affected by multiple sclerosis in North Florida. Worldwide, 1 million people have been diagnosed with the disease, for which there is no cure.

In addition to the 6 to 9 p.m. auction, Bogey Grille will donate a percentage of food and beverage sales to the society. There will also be a 50/50 drawing.

Beaches area donors include Metro Diner, Pusser's, Tire Kingdom, North Guana Outpost, The Loop, Beach Diner, Ruth's Chris Steak House, Adventure Landing, Kudos Massage, Tim's Wine Market, the PGA TOUR, Coastal Wine Market, One Ocean, Beaches Dermatology, Tropical Smoothie Cafe and Lulu's. Vacations include trips to Pinehurst, North Carolina, Amelia Island and Atlantic Beach.  

This event is presented by the local Big Banana bicycling team, which was the top fundraiser in the 2017 Bike MS ride ($145,000). Bogey Grill is located at 150 Valley Circle in Ponte Vedra Beach.
