Annual Santa's Secret Hands charity auction biggest one yet

By  | 

EDMONSON COUNTY, Ky. (WBKO) -- Edmonson County hosted its 13th annual Santa's Secret Hands charity auction Saturday afternoon.

The charity raises money to buy Christmas presents for children and elderly in need.

There was a silent auction going on and also an official auction which included concert and sporting event tickets, furniture and so much more. All the items auctioned off were donated from the community.

"We purchase for the needy in Edmonson County, whether it be children, nursing home, or somebody that's down on their luck," says Jeff Rich.

This year's charity event was the biggest one yet. They raised a total of just over $37,000.

Each year, they do a charity group shopping spree at Walmart to buy the gifts for about 300 kids, 40 elderly and extra presents for those "down on their luck."

They invited 13 News to join along on December 3.
