The annual Soup Supper and Dessert Auction presented by the Fayette Music Boosters raised $26,960.85 Saturday night. The popular event, which takes place in the high school gym, annually raises thousands of dollars to benefit Fayette school district music programs.
One hundred thirty-seven desserts were auctioned off during Saturday’s event—the always famous cinnamon rolls sold for $500 to $700.
Longtime auctioneers Charlie Joe and Todd Flaspohler wrangled in nearly $27,000, just shy of last year’s record of $30,034.
Daly Elementary music director Vanessa Miner challenged those in attendance to donate $500 as hats were passed among the crowd. If that total was raised, she promised, Charlie Joe would sport a Fayette marching band hat for the remainder of the evening. When $861.65 was collected, Mr. Flaspohler wore a band coat as well.
New this year was the addition of a pie contest. Bakers supplied two pies, one for the judges to try, the other for the auction. Michelle Blake’s key lime pie won the first-place prize of $50. A coconut cream pie made by Leah Flaspohler won $35 for second place. Ray Snyder won $25 for his third-place Reese’s pie.
Preceding the auction was the soup supper, for which 18 soups were donated.
