The 13th annual KARB Kickin’ Country pie auction took place last Wednesday and according to totals, was a huge success. According to Castle Country Radio Office Manager Ann Anderson, this year’s event raised $8,511.
“We had 67 pies donated from local businesses, dignitaries and individuals in the Castle Valley area,” explained Anderson. “We want to thank all those who donated pies and prizes for this year’s auction as well as the generous community that purchased the pies.”
Money raised will support local residents with $100 gas cards from the American Cancer Society, support Relay for Life and a $2,500 college scholarship fund will be awarded to a local student.
This year, pies ranged from cherry, apple and banana cream to bread pudding, cakes and ice cream desserts. Prizes also included concert tickets, car washes and paintings.
