WEST LAFAYETTE – Mission Red Auction was a success this year, raising $9,100 for Coshocton County Red Cross on Wednesday, Aug. 13 at 6:30 p.m. at Raven’s Glenn Winery and Restaurant. This annual event is the only fundraising event for the local Red Cross, and money raised during the auction goes to support Red Cross programs such as blood drives, Learn to Swim program, Lifeguard classes, Safety City, and service to the Armed Forces.

Donations came in from the Coshocton community with 60 packaged items up for bid. Some of the big-ticket items included a Milwaukee drill, $400 Oglebay gift card, sports packages including tickets and some autographed items, and tickets to The Lion King in Columbus.

“We appreciate the support we get from the community to do what we do in Coshocton County,” said Kelly Brenneman, territory manager for Red Cross. “Without them coming out and supporting events like this, it would be hard for us to exist.”

The auctioneers for the evening were Jim Nelson from Century 21 and Greg Rice from Peddicord Rice Realty.
