The Third Annual Rotary Club of Canbys Community Auction offered plenty of interesting items and the allure of combining with the Canby Herald Chili Cookoff this year.
A final tally will take weeks, but it looks like the Rotary will meet its goal of a $30,000. Money raised through a silent and oral auctions, as well as the chili feed, will be split among The Canby Center, St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank of Canby and the Canby Rotary Foundation scholarship fund.
The Canby Center funds will be used for the Backpack Buddies program that serves approximately 300 low income students and their families by providing weekend food. The St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank will supplement its contributed food donations, creating the nourishment needed for residents to thrive. The Canby Rotary Foundation will expand its scholarship program which currently assists nine area high school students with scholarship funding to the college or university of their choice.
