Antiques and a variety of furniture. A quilt, collectibles and other memorabilia. Vacation getaways and entertainment. Gift certificates, labor and services. All are examples of the offerings that will be for sale at Community Church of Waterford’s Tidal Wave of Fun Auction on Saturday, March 28.
A dinner of sloppy joes, cheesy potato or chili soup with a side dish, dessert and drink as well as snack items and the silent auction are set to kick off the evening’s activities at 4 p.m. The live auction follows at 5:30 p.m. The auction and dinner will be held in the church’s facility located at 65154 CR 21 (Indiana Avenue), southwest of Goshen.
Grab bags for the kids and a bake sale will also be a part of the day’s events.
A wide variety of items and services are being offered in what promises to be an afternoon and evening of fun and sharing, according to Brenda Smith, auction coordinator for the church.
The auction will feature a quilt, antiques and furniture, collectibles and memorabilia, exercise equipment, vacation getaway packages, a custom kitchen design with renderings and discounts on cabinet purchase, services provided by members of the church as well as a number of gift certificates for restaurants and other businesses.
The money raised by the auction will be used for the church’s ongoing ministries.
A tithe of the auction proceeds will go to support the mission work of Kids Alive International. Based in Valparaiso, Kids Alive International is a Christian faith mission dedicated to rescuing orphans and vulnerable children as well as meeting their spiritual, physical, educational and emotional needs. The money will go toward the support of the church’s two members, Karen Green and Joan Troyer, who are currently in multi-year terms of service in the Dominican Republic with Kids Alive.
