SAFS getting ready for Christmas Tailgate Auction Extravaganza

This year’s big Senior and Family Services auction event will take place on Nov. 8 at the Washington Eastside Park Community Building. Dinner will be served at 6 p.m. with the live auction to follow.

The meal will be prepared by Carla’s Catering and the auctioneer will be Jay Yagle. According to Jill Cecil, Senior and Family Services Executive Director, “This is our biggest fundraising event of the year and it is shaping up to be a fun and lively evening!”

A variety of items will be auctioned off. Again this year there are a number of sports-related items including a Zeller autographed basketball, local high school sports passes, golf packages, a swim and pizza party, along with many more items suitable for gift giving and/or personal use. Cecil says new items for the auction are arriving daily and anyone wishing to make a donation may do so by contacting SAFS at 254-1881.

All proceeds from the event go to Senior and Family Services, a not-for-profit agency serving Daviess County and surrounding areas for 40 years. Senior and Family Services provides a number of programs designed to promote independence while maintaining quality of life for all ages with emphasis on those age 60 and over. These services include: Med X-Press transportation, In-Home attendant care and homemaker services, Adult Day Services, Respite Care, Meals on Wheels Nutrition, four Senior Centers, free tax preparation, and a women’s Fitness Center. Tickets for the Christmas Tailgate Auction Extravaganza are $15 per person or $30 per couple if purchased in advance.

Tickets are available at SAFS, 211 E. Main Street in Washington and at Old National Bank main office on Main Street and at the eastside branch in Washington. Tickets may be purchased at the door for $18 per person or $35 per couple. Cecil notes that the community has always been good to support Senior and Family Services and hopes to have a big turnout for the dinner/auction this year. Cecil adds, “It’s so heart-warming to see folks come out and support our efforts to help others. We are extremely appreciative.”
