Select Theater hosting kids fun day, charity auction Saturday


The Historic Select Theater and Lake Country Playhouse will host a Family Fun Day Saturday, capped off with a charity auction to benefit repairs to the iconic neon tower atop the century-old theater in downtown Mineola.

The whole event will be held directly across the street from the theater in the annex. at 119 N. Johnson St. 

During the day, there will be puppet shows, kids sing-a-longs, games with prizes, popcorn, drink and candy, kid crafts, a kid’s auction event and more.

Events begin at 1 p.m. and there is no admission fee.

At 7 p.m. the theater will host its first ever charity auction. There will be all sorts of things to peruse and bid on, from antiques to collectibles, from theatrical items to items for the home.

The wind, rain and recent snow/ice has caused a lot of damage to the historic landmark and the tower is in danger of collapsing.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Kindness Kottage to help others in need.
