Auction to benefit St. Pauline Center planned for November
KULPMONT - A children's charity auction will be held by the St. Pauline Center at Camp Pauline at noon Saturday, Nov. 3. The auction will benefit Camp Pauline, Children with Diabetes, held ever year in July; the annual Children's Christmas Show, held every year at the Mount Carmel Area High School, and the annual Children's Circus held every year at the Veteran's Sports Complex.
Bob Greco of the St. Pauline Center is hopeful the auction will draw a large turnout. This is the first auction for the center and, depending on the weather, it could be held either outside or inside.
Items up for auction will be viewable to the public from 10 a.m. to noon. Food and beverages will also be available.
Part of the mission of the St. Pauline Center is to help the youth of our community. Greco said he believes by providing these events for the children they will remember good moments of their past, including the good people of their community.
Donations for the auction can be made by calling 373-3350 or mailing to St. Pauline Center, P.O. Box 115, Kulpmont 17834.
