Tom and Mary Keller from Cherokee will be taking care of the Cherokee area, and Bruce and Danae Dreckman of Marcus, will be handle the Marcus area.
The purpose of this fundraiser starts with the Head Start children and then the pre-Head Start to outfit them with a full line of clothing. Recipients also include any names the Needy Children group receives from the area churches and public.
For other needy children they will be selling tickets for a drawing held at the Auction on Dec. 19 at the Brightside Lounge in downtown Cherokee. Each ticket is $1, however if you buy $5 worth you receive a lottery ticket free and could win big money.
The Needy Children Group has been pleased with the response of the community regarding the fundraiser and hopes you will help again.
There will also be a free bean and chili soup lunch served from 11 a.m. to noon on the day of the auction at the Brightside. If you would like to donate something for the auction, it can be left at the Brightside after 2 p.m. each day.
