A benefit auction will be held Saturday July 28th, 2012 at the Lloyd Burkhouse Auction House (PAAU005494) located at 363 South Kendall Ave. in Bradford Pa. The Auction will start at 10:00 AM with all proceeds from the auction going to benefit the First Wesleyan Church of Bradford. The First Wesleyan Church is trying to raise money to pay for a new roof, increase handicapped accessibility, and deal with other building and maintenance issues the church is facing.
About a week ago the First Wesleyan church began an appeal to the public for items to sell at the benefit auction. According to new Pastor Chris Terbush, “ We have received some calls from people wanting to donate items for the auction..” We are grateful to the residents of Bradford and the surrounding communities for helping us to raise funds. First Wesleyan Local Board of Admission member Jeff Nuhfer stated “ The congregation of the First Wesleyan Church wishes to thank Mr. Lloyd Burkhouse for the use of his facility and for all the help he and his wife have given us to make this auction a reality.”
People wanting to donate items can bring them to the Lloyd Burkhouse Auction House Sunday from 1pm to 6pm and on Monday from 10am to 6pm.
Besides holding the auction, members of the First Wesleyan Church plan to sell lunch in order to help raise money for the church repairs. A barbeque pulled chicken sandwich or a sloppy joe plus macaroni salad, a bag of chip, and a cold beverage will be sold for $6.00. Drinks and other food items will be on sale during the auction. Lunch will be available from 11am to 5pm or until all lunches are sold out. For more information please contact Pastor Chris Terbush at 814-368-7865.
