Aulne church auction to benefit missions

Saturday event features everything from potted trees to hunting excursions

Youth recreation, emergency housing, and overseas missions will benefit from “The Big Give,” a dinner and auction Saturday at Aulne United Methodist Church.

A 5:30 p.m. pulled pork meal will be followed by a live auction at 6:30 p.m.

A wide array of items and services have been donated for the auction, including guided fishing and hunting trips, beef hindquarter, gift baskets, home décor, flint rocks for landscaping, Kansas State University football game tickets, bird houses, and more.

The Hub, a Peabody youth center that provides a safe environment to build positive relationships, is one of three organizations that will receive donations.

New Hope Shelter of Newton provides emergency and temporary housing to people in Marion, Harvey, and McPherson counties.

Operation Christmas Child, a program of Samaritan’s Purse, sends shoeboxes with toiletries, school supplies, toys, and gifts overseas. The church sent 419 boxes last year.

The church is located at 1405 Pawnee Rd. in Aulne.
