14th Annual Haiti Benefit Auction set for this weekend

The 14th Annual Haiti Benefit Auction is set to take over the Ag. Event Center behind the Christian County Extension Office this weekend, with a ton of auction events and activities in store.

Everything kicks off Friday evening at 4 p.m. with a catfish supper, complete with all the fixings, and then the auction begins at 5 p.m., featuring items from small crafts to furniture and quilts. From 6 p.m. until 7 p.m. is the Tool Ring Auction and then a singing program wraps everything up around 8 p.m.

Organizer Nate Overholt says things start bright and early Saturday morning at 6:30 a.m. with a full breakfast, before the main auction begins at 8 a.m.

Overholt says all money raised from the auction and donations benefits select and responsible missions in Haiti.
