The FUNd for YOUth auction is scheduled to take place on May 13. The item viewing will begin at 4 p.m. and the auction is to start at 5 p.m. This is a key fundraising event for Crawford County 4-H clubs.
The Fund for Youth Auction has been taking place in Crawford County for multiple years and many families look forward to going annually. “It’s great that we can support local 4-Hers by buying the items they collected,” said Janet Hunter, a retired 4-H leader. In an effort to support the auction, 4-H clubs and their members are encouraged to go to local businesses to collect donations and some will even submit their own crafts. The funds from the auction are divided up by the Crawford County Extension Office and distributed back among the clubs who participated. The amount each club receives is based on how much their donations sell for and their contributions to the event. During the auction, 4-H members check-in and hold the items on the stage while they are being auctioned off.
“We hope to see you there,” said a member of the Fabulous Farmers 4-H Club.
