Christmas in August Auction Items

Lots of people help out by donating things to be auctioned at our annual fund raiser dinner/auction. Some of the items donated are handmade by some very talented people.

Elizabeth Crescent spends the entire year making quilts and other items for the auction from donated materials. She has arthritis so can only work a few hours at a time, but her friends know how much it means to her to be able to help, so they make sure she has the supplies. 

 In addition to quilts, this year Elizabeth sent along hand made quilted vests, one the Christmas vest shown; she also made a clown that was very popular at the auction. 

Daughter Jessica helps display a hand stitched table drape by her Mother Lynn Stevens and "Grandma" -- Lynn is one of the faithful who always brings something to the dinner to be auctioned off.

In addition to putting up the web site, helping with computer consulting, doing the job that earns his living and serving as Director -- Ed Stevens finds time to create beautiful wood pieces for the fundraiser. In 1999 there was a music box nativity scene, a tug boat and a truck.


As Laurie looked over the auction items with her grandson, she had not yet thought of the idea. Later, however, she gave a week vacation at the resort where she works in Crystal Beach as an auction item to help "Christmas in August" fundraiser.
