SVEC Employees Hold Relay for Life Christmas Auction & “Soup”er Luncheon
If you are getting serious about your Christmas shopping, the Sequachee Valley Electric Cooperative Relay for Life Christmas Auction is the place to start. Stop by the Sequachee Valley Electric Cooperative office in South Pittsburg December 12-14 from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and check out the great gift ideas in the silent auction to benefit the American Cancer Society.
Members of SVEC’s Relay for Life team have donated a number of items and services and have received donations from local businesses for valuable gifts and services, all to raise money to fight cancer.
Nearly every one has been touched by cancer in some way and all of us need to get our Christmas shopping done, so why not let your gift-giving dollars give in two ways. First delight your friends and family at Christmas with unique presents while at the same time helping in the fight against this dreaded disease. Last year’s event brought in approximately $8,500 for the fight against cancer. Help raise that total for the 2017 event. The success of this popular fund-raising event is a made possible by the generous donors who provide the auction items and those individuals who bid on and purchase them. Praise for the success goes to all who contribute.
The many gift items will be set up in the SVEC Community room, at 512 South Cedar Ave., South Pittsburg, December 12-14. The room will be open to the public from 11:00 to 1:00 each day and manned by SVEC employees during their lunch breaks. On Thursday, December 14, several “famous” SVEC chefs, will be preparing their special homemade soups and desserts for a “Soup”er luncheon. Tickets for the meal - soup, bread, drink and dessert - are $8.00. Lunch will be served from 11:00 to 1:00 and bidding will close promptly at 1:00 p.m. on December 14. Sealed bids may be left for those who wish to bid but are unable to stay until bidding ends. Those with winning bids may pick up their items any time after 1:00 p.m. All proceeds from the luncheon and the auction will go to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. So come out, have a delicious meal, purchase some great gifts and contribute to this very worthwhile cause! To-go boxes will be available if you would like to pick up your meal to take with you.
