A variety of items will be available for auction in various price ranges. The bakery area will have a large selection of goods. Many area companies have made donations and the Newman community continues to prove how generous they are with their time and talents by offering contributions as well.
The Wichita Children's Home is Wichita's oldest charitable institution. It was founded in 1888 as the city's first orphanage for the "support and care of destitute and homeless children." The organization provides a variety of support to children and their families, as well as teens who have no support system. Visit The Children's Home athttp://www.wch.org.
