Hospice of Randolph Seeks Donations of Items for 27th Annual Auction & BBQPosted on Sep 5th, 2012 | Perma Link
Asheboro, N.C. – After 27 years, Hospice of Randolph County’s Auction & Barbecue is still going strong. This year’s fundraiser will take place on November 3rd at Southwestern Randolph High School. In preparation for the event, Hospice of Randolph County is asking the community for donations for sale in the auction. Examples of items needed for the auction include: fine art, pottery, gift certificates / products from local businesses, furniture, antiques, collectibles, new electronics, jewelry and more. All goods are welcome, but the organization requests that items be in “new” or gently-used condition. These items are needed by the October 10th deadline to be included in this year’s auction. A silent auction will take place during the BBQ dinner from 3:30pm-6:30pm. The live auction will begin at 6:30pm in the gymnasium with WGHP Fox-8’s Morning News anchor Cindy Farmer serving as celebrity guest auctioneer to kick off the auction.
Donations of desserts are also needed for the BBQ dinner. Those wishing to donate dessert items such as cakes, pies, etc., are asked to contact Kathy Wright by October 15th, by calling (336)672-9300. To help streamline the program, there will be no baked goods sold during the live auction this year. Instead, there will be a special “Sweet Shoppe Bakery” tent set up in the gym to showcase and sell these delicious items. People donating items for this booth are asked to pre-register their baked goods. Also, any leftover BBQ will be sold as a “Sunday Lunch Deal”, while supplies last.
This year’s attendees will once again enjoy BBQ prepared by the Randolph County Livestock & Poultry Association. Tickets are $8 a plate, which includes barbecue, sides, drink and a dessert. You will receive a 5th BBQ dinner FREE with the purchase of 4 tickets.
All money raised from the event will go to benefit a new scholarship for the Randolph Hospice House- The Patient Scholarship Fund for Residential Room and Board. All donations of auction items are tax-deductible and donors will be acknowledged in publications and media. If you would like to donate items or purchase tickets, please contact Hospice of Randolph Countyby visiting www.hospiceofrandolph.org or by calling (336) 672-9300
