WCCH Auction = Huge Success

Lee Bracey, Dennis King and Joe Heins.

This year the annual Woodburn Christian Children’s Home Benefit Auction took place at the Community Center in Woodburn, as usual, and had a terrific turnout. The event is one of the major ways the children’s home receives its funding.

Along with the silent auction and the regular auction, there was a prepared meal which many people enjoyed for a free will donation.

A new request this year for the Children’s Home is that they are collecting donations to purchase a new vehicle. The posters that have been made and distributed are of an old truck full of kids and the driver was a house parent. That house parent was actually of Dennis King in the early ’90’s when he was a house parent at the Home on Notestine Road.

Joe Heins, Assistant Executive Director, and Lee Bracey, both of the Children’s Home, announced how pleased with the turnout they were and the huge community support for this ministry.

Jerry Ehle and Schrader Auctioneers provided the auctioneering services for this event and made it go very smoothly with so many people all coming into Woodburn. Many people volunteered and made this a huge success.

The 2017 WCCH Benefit Auction was a resounding success. Many believe this was our largest attendance ever. The WCCH staff work diligently, along with over 70 volunteers, to promote an event that brought glory to God. The proceeds from the auction also topped the charts.
