Annual auction under way


Supporters of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital know there are "A Million Reasons to Give a Child Hope," after last year's auction broke record contributions.

"Last year, the auction raised more than one million dollars for St. Jude," said auction spokesperson Laura Hollingsworth. "That is how we came up with this year's slogan. Even if we don't break that record this year, we know that this is a worthy cause."

This year's logo was designed by Brian Carlisle using a fleur de lis over a painting of Minden which was created by Chris Broussard.

"We will have tee-shirts with this year's logo on sale during the auction," Hollingsworth said. "They can also be purchased online, but there will be a shipping and handling charge."

Hollingsworth said having the auction online has helped increase bids and donations.

"What started on the radio years ago, has grown into a multi-media venue for St. Jude supporters local and far away," she said. "This is a local event our area looks forward to every year, and St. Jude continually lets us know how much they appreciate our being their biggest supporter per capita."
