Arenac community funds to hold annual holiday auction


ARENAC COUNTY— The Arenac Community Funds will host their 17th annual Holiday Auction on Dec. 5 at Ali’s Up North in Au Gres. Registration starts at 6 p.m. and the auction starts at 7 p.m.

Proceeds from the auction go towards funding for grants the Community Funds organization distributes to various non-profit groups and towards scholarships. Standish Area Chamber of Commerce president Tara Binder said those grants are awarded twice a year to nonprofits benefiting Arenac County.

According to Binder, the organization has donated more than $350,000 since 2000, including scholarships.

The auction attracts a crowd every year Binder said. People usually arrive early to eat and check out the donations, said Binder.

The deadline to donate items for the auction is Dec. 2, however, Binder said they are happy to accept donations at any time.

“With this fundraiser, you know 100% will impact local people and non-profits,,” said Binder, “You are helping so many events around the county that may otherwise not happen. It’s good to know that the items donated are impacting the area and going to people you know.”

To donate to the auction, call Ronda Switek at 989-846-5205 or Tara Binder at 989-846-4595.
