About 100 people enjoyed barbecue dinners, live entertainment and a silent auction at Saturday’s Dollars for Dylan event held at the John W. Stevens Wetland Center in J.F. Gregory Park.

The silent auction alone raised around $1,400, according to event organizer Nancy Miller, and contained prizes like a wine lover’s basket, a hair care basket, an array of gift cards and even a seven-night vacation. The auction also included several hand-made items from a group known as Common Threads.

“The ladies got together and made different items to donated to the silent auction,” Common Threads member Naomi Fay said.

The next Dollars for Dylan fundraiser is a garage sale from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday under the pavilion in J.F. Gregory Park. Miller said items are still being collected and can be donated at the bin in the Century 21 Ways Station parking lot in Richmond Hill.
