Auction history goes back 38 years

999921 10151896054982129 1247290577 nThe Minden St. Jude Auction has raised almost as much in the past four years as it has in the previous 33 for the Memphis, Tenn.-based children's cancer research hospital.

Since the auction's inception in 1976, the annual fundraiser has raked in more than $10.4 million – nearly $4 million of that since 2010.

"It gets in your blood," former auction chairman Mike Harper said. "It's fun and it's obviously worthwhile. I refer to it as Minden's festival - it's our Holiday in Dixie, Zwolle Tamale, Ruston Peach Festival. St. Jude is our deal."
