CLEARFIELD – The 2010 Auction Committee is still collecting donations for the upcoming 15th Annual Anne S. Thacik Charity Auction. This year’s auction will be held on Wednesday evening, Oct. 13, at the Knights of Columbus in Clearfield. Sponsored in part by Home Instead Senior Care, this is a wonderful event you will not want to miss.
The evening begins at 6 PM with a silent auction and several prize drawings. A 50/50 cash raffle will be conducted. Last year’s winner took home over $1,000! Raffle tickets are available now and through auction night at a cost of one ticket for $5, or 3 tickets for $10.
The live auction begins at 7:30, with Bob E. Day as emcee, and local favorite, Pat Errigo, as auctioneer. Wine and a variety of desserts will be available throughout the evening for your enjoyment. More than 100 items are on the docket to be auctioned, including get-away trips, fine restaurant packages, autographed items, event tickets, theme baskets, handwork, and much more.
Admission tickets are $10 each, but special pricing is available for groups at 15 tickets for $100. Funds raised will help support programs and services of the Area Agency on Aging. Rikki Ross, marketing & events coordinator for the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging, Inc., described last year’s event as very successful and well attended. “Our hopes remain high that previous donors and sponsors will be as generous this year, and that we can count on as lively an audience as we have enjoyed in the past.”
