ARLINGTON, Va. (7News) — The Silver Diner in Clarendon, Va. will close after 26 years and will be moving less than two miles down the road to Ballston.
As part of its closing, this beloved location will be holding an "End of an Era" auction, that has nostalgic memorabilia from the restaurant raffled and sold off. The auction will be running until Dec. 22, and available items can be found online.
All proceeds will go to the Real Food for Kids charity, which helps feed needy families in the region. To date, Silver Diner has raised over $193,000 for the organization, a restaurant spokesperson said.
