Agigaue Auction coming soon

The Agigaue Women’s Club will hold its annual auction on Thursday, Nov. 3, at Heritage Golf in Oneonta.

The event, this year is the 14th annual, serves as the main fundraiser for the group’s many community projects that are held throughout the year. Those projects include bringing the Birmingham Children’s Theatre to Oneonta Elementary School for performances, providing activity bags for the emergency room at St. Vincent’s Blount, providing assistance with the summer reading program at Oneonta Public Library, and providing refreshments for the DHR Foster Children’s Christmas Party. In addition, the group funds college scholarships each year.

This year, there will be more than 100 items in the silent auction to go with those to be bid on during the regular auction.

Cost is $20 per ticket and each ticket is good for a dinner buffet, two drink vouchers, and access to both auctions. The event will begin at 6:30 p.m.

The Agigaue Women’s Club was chartered in 1975 by Amilea Porter, who recognized the need for a women’s service club. She invited 10 women to join her based on their moral character and responsibility and willingness to work toward a goal of community involvement and awareness.

The group took the name Agigaue, which means “beloved women” in the Cherokee language.

Each year, the club recognizes a “beloved woman” at the auction. This person is honored by the group for her integrity and service to the community.
