Memorial auction benefits Lake Nebagamon youth, families

One of the most entertaining and unique fall events, the Darren Harvey Memorial Auction to benefit Kids in Nebagamon is set for Thursday.

The annual auction begins at 6 p.m. at the Lake Nebagamon Auditorium, 11596 E. Waterfront Drive. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for viewing of the auction items. Proceeds from the auction benefit the Northwestern Youth Football League.

This auction offers a number of very special items and experiences. Among them are unique art objects, homemade food specialties, tickets to upcoming events and many items donated by local businesses.

This memorial auction honors the late Darren Harvey of Lake Nebagamon who died in an accident in 2010. It benefits the Kids in Nebagamon mission of assisting children whose families are experiencing crises.

Last year 94 children from the communities in the Maple School District were assisted at Christmas time.

KIN also supports and sponsors programs and projects to benefit children and families. The proceeds from an earlier Harvey Auction were used to purchase a new swimming raft at the Lake Nebagamon Public Beach, a popular gathering spot for families from throughout the area.

KIN is a federally approved nonprofit organization supported by donations, grants and fundraisers throughout the year. Donations to KIN can be used as state and federal tax deductions.
