The Springer Family Auction is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday at the Cherokee Community Center, benefitting the family of Fred Springer, who was seriously injured and debilitated in a traffic accident last spring and has been unable to work since.
The benefit auction features an impressive, valuable collection of antiques, collectibles, furniture, outdoor items, and miscellaneous items too numerous to mention.
The antique and collectibles items cover a wide range, with many original items still in their boxes, and the many outdoor items include prize collections of seasonal and holiday house and yard displays.
Auctioneers Denny O'Bryan and Todd Hatterman are donating their services to help benefit the Springer family that is facing difficult financial times since Fred's debilitating accident that cost him his job and earnings capabilities.
The public is encouraged to attend the auction to help support this worthy cause.
"Fred was injured in an automobile accident in April, and since then has not been able to do his former job," explained Jim Adamson who has been assisting the Springers, long-time community volunteers and defoted Depot Renovation Group supporters. "His income went to zero. He applied for help from the Department of Human Services and the Social Security Administration among other agencies and is still waiting a determination.
This auction is an opportunity for Fred and Linda to use their own assets to raise money to help them pay bills and stay in their home until the hoped for time when Fred will be approved for Social Security Disability and have a reliable ongoing income.
"I hope that members of our depot group who are able will help in preparing for the auction or during the auction. If you are interested, please call me at 229-9502 or call Fred and Linda at 225-1234. We will suggest ways you can help.
