This is a great way for the community to start their holiday shopping early and support local charities. Auction paddles are $1, and most auctioned items will require only a single quarter bid. In addition, this year you can purchase a double dip paddle for $3.

Funds raised by Iota Chi Chapter are used for a variety of community projects and student development, such as supporting the Humane Society of Logan County, Walk to End Alzheimerís, St. Johnís Childrenís Hospital, Polar Plunge for Special Olympics of Logan County, and helping Iota Chi members experience leadership opportunities.

Participating vendors include Scentsy, Tupperware, Pink Zebra, Paparazzi, doTerra, LulaRoe, and others.
