Online Auction For Piece of ‘90’s Nostalgia From Northgate Ends Friday

Benefits Northside Neighborhood House

Tuesday, April 1, 2014

While doing a bit of spring cleaning, Northgate mall staffers came across an interesting piece of nostalgia from their early years - a baby grand piano previously used in the mall to entertain shoppers.  The 1990 Kawai Baby Grand Piano was recently appraised for over $3,000.   Mall spokesperson Catharine Wells said she reached out to Northside Neighborhood House to see if they could utilize it and the fund-raising idea was put into motion.   

“We are in awe of the work that Northside Neighborhood House has been doing for north of the river residents for the past 90 years and are thrilled to support them with this endeavor”, stated Steve Banks, Northgate Mall’s general manager.

The piano is currently on display in at Northgate Mall for anyone interested in “tickling the ivories”.   Bidders are asked to visit WinningCause.org/all-auctions to place a bid before the deadline on Friday at 6 p.m.

 “We appreciate the generosity and support of local businesses like Northgate Mall,” said Brianne Carswell, development director of NNH. “Any gift - whether it be an in-kind donation, time or money - helps support our life changing programs and benefits neighbors in need.”
