BLUFF CITY — In what is planned as the first of several fund-raising events for a Boys and Girls Club program in Bluff City, dozens of donated items — from Dollywood tickets to restaurant and hotel gift cards or vouchers — will be auctioned this week.

The host location, La Campina restaurant in Piney Flats, also will be donating a percentage of all food sales during the event, scheduled for 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday.

The Bluff City Board of Mayor and Aldermen (BMA) has pledged $50,000 in town funding toward the $100,000 needed to fund the first year of the Bluff City Unit of the Boys & Girls Club of Bristol.
