The Pearly Pond Lake Association is hosting a silent auction Dec. 9, to help offset the costs of maintaining the Pearly Pond dam.

Anna Zukowski, a member of the association and auction organizer, said the association is responsible for maintaining the dam and the area around it, such as cutting back tree overgrowth and weeds.

The funds from the auction will be put toward a long-term maintenance plan for the dam.

The auction is scheduled for 7 to 11 p.m. Dec. 9 at the Jaffrey VFW hall, 12 Hathorn Road in Jaffrey. Tickets are $25, which includes a dinner of pizza from Pancho’s Pizza of Peterborough, and live entertainment from the Lake Effect Band of Keene, along with access to the silent auction. A cash bar will be available. Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door.

There are 31 lots open for bidding, with prizes that include a pair of Boston Bruins hockey tickets, an electric guitar signed by the famed country music quartet The Oak Ridge Boys, a weekend house rental on Pearly Pond Lake, baskets featuring car-detailing products from Pristine Auto Detailing and items from Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Eastern Mountain Sports and Pelletier’s Sports Shop, as well as items such as jewelry, a fire pit and a swimming pool.

Starting bids for items will start at as low as a quarter of the item’s total value.
