Happiness is giving. The act of helping others, donating to charities, and missions or even volunteering will give you an improved sense of wellbeing.
This coming weekend will be home to the 12th annual Haiti Benefit Auction on May 20-21, 2022. The event will take place at The Ag Expo Center located directly behind the Christian County Agriculture Extension Office at 2850 Pembroke Road.
On both days, the auction will be selling homemade food, quilts, power tools, indoor and outdoor furniture, gift baskets, crafts, fence post, scale tractors, chicken fences, purple martin supplies, garden items and much more.
Organizer Nate Overholt said the money being raised will directly benefit the mission work that’s done in Haiti.
“We raised money for this event ahead of time so all the auction proceeds, every penny goes to missions in Haiti, pre-approved missions,” Overholt said. “Whatever we make this weekend will all go to Haiti.”
On Friday, the benefit auction will be open to the community all day for donating and purchasing items. At the auction, there will be a southern fried catfish fish fry served with hush puppies, cole slaw, baked beans, dinner rolls, homemade pie and vanilla ice cream for sale.
At 4 p.m., the silent auction will begin in conjunction with a singing program. The auction will tip off at 6 p.m., wrapping up around 8:45 p.m.
In closing on Friday evening, additional acapella gospel song selections will be sung for the community to enjoy.
On Saturday, the auction will begin early morning at 6:30 a.m. and will last until 1 p.m. Food will also be for sell during Saturday’s gathering. Breakfast will be served at 6:30 a.m. and the auction board will open at 8:00 a.m., during Saturdays event furniture will be for sell as well as tools, quilts and other unique items. Lunch will be served at 10:30 a.m. and the silent auction board will close at 1 p.m.
Terms of sale accepted will be cash, Visa, Mastercards and Discover cards.
The community can help out in more ways than one. Purchasing an item or buying a plate or giving a love offering helps. All profit made will be donated to missions in Haiti.
The benefit auction is sponsored by the Local Mennonite and Plain Communities.
For more information on the event, or to donate items or money to the cause, contact organizer Nate Overholt at 270-725-0320 or online to kyhba.org
