Area residents "shopped" for deals recently as National MS Awareness Week kicked off with the seventh annual silent auction at Bogey Grille.
Beaches, Town Center and Nocatee retailers, service providers and restaurants donated 250 items to help raise more than $20,000 dollars for the North Florida Society chapter. The record amount will help provide programs and services for North Floridians impacted by multiple sclerosis.
The free event is held annually in Ponte Vedra Beach and is open to the public. For information about this year's Nov. 23-24 Bike MS PGA TOUR Cycle to the Shore, go to www.bikems.org.
