Upcoming Charity Auction

Recommended Posts

My wife has been working very hard for the last year setting up a Celebrity Charity Auction to benefit the Victory Junction Gang Camp to be held on <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:date Year="2006" Day="29" Month="7">July 29, 2006</st1:date>. The auction will be held at the Logansport Mall in <st1:place><st1:City>Logansport</st1:City>, <st1:State>Indiana</st1:State></st1:place>, and will offer a very wide variety of items donated by an equally wide variety of celebrities and sports personalities.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>


If you're not familiar with the Victory Junction Gang Camp, it is a camp for children with chronic medical conditions or serious illness. It provides camping experiences that are fun, exciting, physically safe and medically sound for these children who would otherwise never have the opportunity. The 75-acre site includes a dining hall, gym, pool, theater, therapeutic equestrian center, arts & craft center, 16 camper cabins, and more. The camp is free to the children and their families.<o:p></o:p>


The list of items donated for the auction is much too long to post here, but runs the gamut from photographs, hats, shirts & jackets to diecasts, CD’s, books, scripts, and even includes a fiddle and a racing helmet. The vast majority of items are autographed and those that aren’t are of a collectible nature. Door prizes are also planned.<o:p></o:p>


It was also recently confirmed that Boston Reid, driver of the #25 Woodard Racing Craftsman Series Truck, who is a native of <st1:City><st1:place>Logansport</st1:place></st1:City>, will attend the event and be available for autographs.<o:p></o:p>

This doesn’t even scratch the surface of the items to be auctioned, so if anyone would like a complete list (to date, as donations are still coming in) e-mail me or send me a PM and we’ll e-mail you a copy. This is strictly an individual effort to raise money for a great cause so we would greatly appreciate any interest or participation in this event.<o:p></o:p>
