The Bosco-Milligan Foundation commemorated its twentieth anniversary by hosting the thirteenth annual Riches of a City Heritage Auction. Some 350 history buffs gathered at the Governor Hotel to mark the occasion and to snag a treasure trove of relics, such as an antique locomotive headlight, or lavish travel packages like a weeklong escape to Nantucket. The big-ticket prizes ushered in $70,000 for the foundation’s historic preservation programs.
