Silent Auction Raises Funds for Elementary School

Marshpoint Elementary's annual silent auction and dinner was held last night to raise money to help children. On the block, food baskets, sporting goods, and things for the kids. The money they raise helps the staff buy extra items for the school.

"To raise funds for computers, and this year we're trying to get a stage and all of that put in, so we're trying to raise money for educational things for our children," said coordinator Tracey Oetgen.

Last year, they raised more than $10,000 with the dinner and auction.
