Dark clouds and steady rain didn’t keep a large crowd from attending the 3rd Annual St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Auction, hosted by Ben Bray Real Estate & Auction Company.
The event was held at the Sally Wells Building last Saturday morning, raising approximately $22,000. “We certainly appreciated the large turnout,” Bray said, “and anyone who still wants to donate just call the office at 666-2232 or drop by 672 Highway 52 By Pass West. I would like to thank everyone who donated items for the auction and a special thanks to Joe Bonsell of the Oak Ridge Boys who attended the event, along with my employees who donate their free time to help out. We couldn’t do this without everyone’s support and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.” (Photos by D. Gregory)
