St. Anthony’s Harvest Festival live auction will return again this year.
Craig Yeszin, a Tracy business owner and a St. Anthony School parent, is leading the live auction event. He has plenty of experience in making things happen in business and working well with members of the community.
St. Anthony’s thanks the Cambra family for chairing the live auction for the past several years. The Cambra family worked diligently with local farming, retail, and Portuguese communities to solicit donations and participants for the auction.
During this time they made a significant contribution to the success of the festival and established solid friendships in the community. The Cambra family, along with their volunteers, conducted a first-class and well-run live auction. They ensured that their donors were appreciated and participants cared for with food and drink during the event. .
Organizers are planning to auction a wide variety of items again this year. Items will include homemade breads, baked goods, art work, china and flatware, household and agriculture items. Please contact the church office to donate items to the auction, or money to sponsor a booth.
St. Anthony’s Harvest Festival is the weekend of Sept. 20 and 21. The Live Auction will take place on Sunday from 1:30 to 3:30pm. Everyone is invited to come and enjoy their favorite foods, entertainment, and games. A variety of games will entertain the children. Adults can play Bingo and Pull Tabs. Bingo will be played on Saturday and Sunday afternoons; Pull Tabs will be played all the time during the festival.
The Major Raffle has an impressive line-up of bikes, Xbox, iPad, trips, sports events and more. The grand prize of a 60-inch LED Smart TV will be announced Sunday evening. (One need not be present to win.) The Bazaar and Silent Auction will be open during the entire festival with a lineup of great prizes.
