The Valle Crucis Community Park will hold its annual auction Saturday, August 24 at the Apple Barn in Valle Crucis.

The annual auction is the park’s most significant fundraising event of the year, held on the fourth Saturday of August.

Registration, breakfast, and item preview will open at 9 a.m.

This year’s event will include a silent auction as well.

Gift certificates and merchandise from local businesses, as well as art, antiques, and much more will be up for grabs.

Proceeds from the auction will go back into the park, which is a 501-c-3 non profit entity and is also a designated Environmental Education Center.

Eighty percent of the park's operating budget comes from donations, while remaining comes from grants and fees for special use of park facilities.
