The 2023 Children’s Auction will be in Memory of Carol Farmer.
Carol passed away in June of 2023. Without the faith and determination of Carol, the Children’s Auction may never have come to fruition. Back in 2005, she had been on the auction board. At that time, when Jay Witman asked if anyone would be interested in starting an auction geared just for children, Carol stepped up in faith. She had never done anything like this before, but she made it happen.
Each year, more events were added. After running the Children’s Auction and Children’s Activities for 11 years, Carol stepped down and trained Marsha and Cathy to take over her role. Carol was a great leader and someone we looked up to for direction and guidance, which she was always willing to give! Carol had a love for kids and was passionate for the auction!
If anyone would like to donate a NEW toy item to the Children’s Auction in Carol’s memory, we will include a note on the item designating it as donated in her memory. You may contact Marsha Heisey or Cathy Whitman with any questions. We hope you can join us at this year’s Auction so we can remember & commemorate Carol in a special way!
~Carol will be missed by all of us at the Brethren Disaster Relief Auction
