The evening will begin with a silent auction at 4:30 p.m. a turkey dinner at 5 and a live auction beginning at 6. Those attending are encouraged to wear sock hop attire such as poodle skirts and letter sweaters or jackets.

The cost of the dinner is $10 for adults and $5 for children younger than 12. Proceeds from the event will be used to send church youths to summer camp and to support children’s programs at the church.

The church is at 115 N. Raymond Road. Call (509) 924-7262 for more information or dinner tickets.
