Children’s Christmas Benefit Auction
December 2 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
This year, head to Brown County Inn for the 2022 Annual Children’s Christmas Benefit Auction on Friday, December 2nd. Proceeds from the auction items ensure that Brown County families in need have a new item of clothing for Christmas. Doors open at 5 p.m.
45 years ago a group of Brown County locals gathered on the liar’s bench in downtown Nashville and discussed a way to ensure that all kids in the Brown County school system have warm clothes for winter. They came up with the idea to gather goods from local merchants and the Brown County Children’s Auction was born. This group called themselves the “No-Name Committee” and each year since that time, the auction has been held on the first Friday in December and all proceeds continue to be used to provide clothing for children in need. The annual auctions have provided more than $640,000 in clothing and helped many Brown County children. The auction will feature donated art, crafts, antiques, donated items from local merchants, gift certificates for local restaurants, hotels, and many outside organizations including Holiday World and the Cincinnati Reds. Locals donate home baked cookies and prize winning brownies and there is always something really special to bid on.
