Thursday auction will help Sanctuary Hospice

By NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – Sanctuary Hospice House supporters hope Auction 354 comes up big Thursday.
The auction event, which will begin at 6 p.m. at the BancorpSouth Arena, is the centerpiece of a $1 million campaign to build eight additional patient rooms.
The campaign and auction are named in honor of the 354 patients Sanctuary had to turn away in 2010 because they had no rooms available in the 16-bed facility in West Tupelo.
Silent and live auctions will feature a broad selection of art, furniture, gifts, collectibles and trips.
Admission is $10. Tickets are also available for a draw down, but must be purchased by 6:45 p.m.
For more information, call (662) 844-2111.
