Hill Top Heritage Foundation’s 26th Steak Fry and Auction will be held October 25 at the Buckskin Bar and Grill Dance Hall.
Supper will be served from 5:30 to 7:00 with the auction to follow. Money earned will be used in the “Special Care Unit” which is scheduled to open this month at Hill Top Home of Comfort.
This year’s event promises to be even bigger and better than the previous events with local artists showcasing their talents on a variety of pieces of furniture and items. Cheryl Dolezal, co-chair of the event, says, “We are so excited about the items we have to offer in the auction this year. Most of our previous artists have returning pieces and we have several new artists contributing to the event.”
One of those new artists is Emery Dobitz, a junior at Killdeer High School who has done an oil painting of a horse. Other new artist include Candyce Kleemann who designed a mosaic table and who is painting a time out chair, Jen Dobitz who is making a coffee table, Allene Olson Nelson who donated a refurbished chair, Tyler Patterson who does crayon art, Mandy Wheeling who turns mottos into art work, and Susan Hannah who is making a “one of a kind” stick horse. Marcia Lehman has returned to the event with a saw blade painting. These items can all be viewed on Facebook on the Hill Top Heritage Foundation page and some of the furniture is available for viewing at American Bank Center.
Returning artists include Donna Knutson, Carrie Carson, Cherri Lynch, Talia Bang, Cheri Roshau, Vicki Pennington, Robin Blankenship, Abby Fettig Wald, Alfred Hansen, Andy Knudson and Joe Reems. Jodi Carlson, co-chair of the event, stated, “We never see what Joe’s donating to the auction until that night, but, he never disappoints.
Each of his pieces are unique and always bring top dollar.” Cherri Lynch designed a commemorative bench for Killdeer’s centennial and the winning raffle ticket will be drawn during the auction. Raffle tickets for Cherri’s bench will be available at the Steak Fry.
Sheila Murphy, president of the Foundation, added, “There are over 80 items in the regular auction and over 20 in the silent auction. We have three Coach purses donated by High Plains Dental and they always are exciting items in the auction.
We do a raffle that is lots of fun during the auction for one of the purses. For five dollars some lucky lady might be able to walk away with a Coach purse.”
Janene Knudsvig and Shari Barnes are in charge of the meal and Cheryl Boyce has again agreed to do the grilling. The menu includes grilled steaks, potatoes and homemade bars. Tickets are available at the door, at Hill Top Home of Comfort main office, and at the local banks for $25.00. Cindy Agre, Foundation Vice President, commented, “We welcome everyone to an evening of good food and good fellowship for a good cause.”
