Since having been chartered in 2006, The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary has hosted a Holiday auction to support the programs and services of The Salvation Army and in the six years of the Holiday auctions the Women’s Auxiliary has raised more than $70,000. Items in the auction are donated from Auxiliary members, board members, community partners and businesses. Some items are up for auction during a silent auction while others are part of the live auction.
In 2009, The Women’s Auxiliary added a fashion show to the event. In each year since, the fashion show has been hosted by Vanessa Coria of WVEC-TV 13News while the clothing in the fashion show has been either from Dillard’s or Nordstrom. In 2011 The Women’s Auxiliary had LaSalle Blanks, Vanessa’s co-host on WVEC’s Daybreak, serve as the auctioneer for the live auction.
