February 23, 2012 · 2:10 PM
Wilkeson Eagles Aerie No. 1409 will host a benefit dinner, auction and dance to support the club’s building restoration fund. The event will take place Saturday.
During the past six years, the Wilkeson Eagles have spent nearly $50,000 restoring the historic building constructed in 1910. The Eagles, along with other fraternal organizations, have occupied the building for 102 years. There is still more work to be done and all funds raised during Saturday’s benefit will go toward the restoration of the building.
Roast pork loin and honey glazed chicken will be served beginning at 4 p.m. The dinner includes baked potato, salad, green beans and rolls. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for kids 6 to 12 and free for children 5 and younger. A silent auction will be running during the dinner and at about 6 p.m. a live auction will begin. Following the auction, there will be live music and dancing until midnight.
Those wishing to donate items for the auction can contact trustee Bill Summers at 360-829-0917 or trustee Rick Pries at 360-829-1224. Also, auction donations can be dropped off beginning at 4 p.m. Thursday and Friday. Any new or good used items are welcome.
The Wilkeson Eagles building is at 534 Church St. Tickets will be available at the door.
