At this FREE family-friendly live event, you can expect LIVE music from Boom! Kinetic presented by Arvest Bank, an online silent auction featuring a variety of tempting items, a short program about the Children’s Safety Center and why continuing to have this event is so important… and if the donations are high enough, you will see some familiar faces get a pie in the face. Stay tuned as we reveal who those lucky (and generous) people are!
Online Auction Bidding will open on Thursday, July 1 and close at 10:00 p.m. Friday, July 16th. Below is a link to the Online Auction bidding site and instructions on how to register. You can register and view items at any time between now and the event. More items will be added every week, so keep checking back to see what’s new!
