Holiday Auction to return to Au Gres

Posted

Au GRES — The Arenac Community Funds Committee is holding its 16th annual Holiday Auction next Thursday, Dec. 6, at Ali’s UpNorth in Au Gres.

In addition to a number of prizes and goodies to be auctioned off, all funds raised will go toward the ACF’s general endowment fund, ACF Vice Chair Tara Binder said, adding that in 2018, ACF was able to grant out approximately $22,533 to local nonprofits, agencies and schools.

“I think it’s great to have something locally that you know you're money is staying local,” Binder said. “Sometimes when you donate to the bigger charities you're not really certain where the money is going, where as this, you can be 100 percent certain that it’s going right back into nonprofits in the community.”

Binder said the auction is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m., with registration opening at 6 p.m. said she encouraged those interested in attending arrive early to get seats and check out auction items.

Items up for auction include resort getaways, billboard and radio advertising packages, various gift baskets, art, home decor and more, she said.

Ali’s UpNorth is located at 110 E. Huron Rd. in Au Gres. For more information, contact Binder at 989-846-9234.
