The Sweet Onion Classic is hosting a Live and Silent Auction tonight in an effort to raise money for organization like The Mercy Ministries. This committee of devoted Toombs County members work almost year round to pull off the yearly golf tournaments and auctions, and over the last twenty-seven years have contributed over $1 million to community organizations, projects and needs in the Toombs-Montgomery area!
The Sweet Onion Classic has generously decided to contribute to The Mercy Ministries again this year, helping us to continue our work of wiping out poverty in Toombs and surrounding areas. Because of their support this year, we will be able to help no less than 5 patients receive the medical care, dental care, medications, and access to educational classes through Mercy University for one whole year! Five patients might not seem like a lot, but to those five patients living 200% below the poverty level, it means EVERYTHING! They will be given an opportunity to improve their health, get back in the workforce, improve the life and well being of their families, and begin giving back to our beloved community.
Tonight the committee has assembled quite an items list. Anything from trips abroad to catered movie nights at The PAL will be up for bid.

To show your support and place your own bid, drop by the Vidalia Community Center tonight at 6:30. You won't be disappointed!
