You enter the auction house to the sounds of local country singer, Beau Beaumont strumming, and singing. The room filled quickly, with just a few seats left. Items donated to be sold line the front of the room. Vacuums, computers, even a set of antique irons are up for bid.
The auctioneer starts off with the first item and for the next 3 hours, he does not stop. The Jeep Grand Cherokee sold for $1500. A bread maker brought $15. Item by item, the dollars rolled in to benefit The Kershaw Park.
This was a special auction in which all the proceeds going to the park project. This money combined with grants and many other donations are helping to fund a rebuild of the Haile Gold Mine Playground.
The Build is set to begin on March 16th, with a grand reopening of the park on March 30th. Donations can still be made. Information can be found at www.kershawpark.com
