“The parishioners always come through with great items for the silent and live auctions,” said Kate Campbell, coordinator.
Barry Beuershausen will serve as auctioneer again this year. The drawing for the many great raffle prizes will be held at the close of the auction. There are 34 prizes in the raffle this year with the big prize being $1,000 in Visa gift cards. Tickets are $1 and will be sold by the CCD students. Tickets will also be available for sale the day of the festival.
“This traditional event is always lots of fun and is the only fundraiser held by the church,” said Betty Bauer, festival coordinator.
