Auction to benefit Toys for Tots Saturday in Marseilles

To ensure certain area children have a better Christmas, organizers for U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots will sponsor a silent auction from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2, at Prairie Lakes Country Club and Inn, 2550 N. 32 Road in Marseilles.

Toys for Tots volunteer Tim Faust said the auction will feature special items, gift boxes, shopping certificates and raffles.

Entertainment that night will be provided from 8 to 11 p.m. by local musician Stephen Bores.

The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community where the campaign is conducted.
