The Lakes Crisis & Resource Center recently hosted the first of what is intended to be an annual event – an Old Fashion Charity Auction to raise funds to support the programs and services provided by LCRC and Mary’s Place Shelter.
The event was held on August 16th at the Kent Freeman Arena under the professional guidance of Bachmann Auctioneers. The auction bill was comprised solely of items donated by individuals and businesses from the local and surrounding communities. The auction committee and LCRC staff are grateful to all who donated towards and attended the auction making it an incredibly successful fundraiser.
The event would not have been possible without dedicated committee members, generous and thoughtful members of the community, and supportive businesses. We are especially grateful to Daggett Trucking for providing the trailer for storing our auction items and to Jack Chivers Reality for allowing the trailer to reside in the parking lot throughout the summer. In addition, thanks goes out to KLN for providing storage space during our Perham drop off weekend. Also, thanks to Newman Signs, Central Market, Jill Mickelson, United Community Bank, and all who volunteered at the trailer on the drop off dates and the day of the event.
We are so appreciative of the generosity of Leighton Broadcasting for getting the word out to the community by donating air time, and to the area newspapers for graciously promoting our event. Finally, a huge thank you goes to Bachmann Auctioneers for their professionalism and generosity.
