Eagles Cancer Auction This Weekend
The Owatonna Fraternal Order of Eagles will conduct their 56th annual Cancer Auction starting this Friday, February 2 at 6PM and Saturday, February 3 at 4:30PM. The auction features new items, gift cards, gift baskets, event tickets and more. Some of the specific items up for bids include a gun cabinet donated by Christian Brothers Cabinets. This was donated in memory of longtime auctioneer Jeff Kath who passed away earlier this month. There will be a number of bean bag boards up for bids. One of them is a Minnesota Wild board and the other is a State Champion Owatonna Husky board. Minnesota Wild tickets and a poker table will also be on the auction block.
In 2017 the Owatonna Eagles raised over $60,000 in the fight against cancer with over $52,000 of that coming from the auction. Just the other day it was announced that the 5th district had raised over a million dollars for research during the most recent campaign and they were still adding up the funds coming in.
