Liberty Christian makes changes to annual auction

'Duck Dynasty' theme, food trucks added to raise more money for school

ANDERSON — Liberty Christian School is upping the ante for its upcoming Duck-Tacular event.

The school’s annual benefit auction is steering away from past forest themes to “Duck-Tacular,” a nod to the popular A&E show “Duck Dynasty.”

Guests can bid on a variety of items at a silent and live auction at 5:30 p.m. April 26 in Mounds Mall.

Marie Brazel, auction chair, said a basket with “Duck Dynasty” memorabilia is one of the items up for bid.

The live auction stage will also be called “Phil’s Place,” based off the show’s patriarch.

“Historically we’ve done forest themes that we’ve tweaked (each year),” Brazel said. “This was what is new and fresh. It’s popular and not super serious, just super fun.”

Brazel hopes to raise $40,000 at this year’s auction. Last year’s raised about $28,000, she said.

The jump in expectations stems partially from another change for this year’s event. For the first time, the auction committee asked for sponsors, one of which is St. Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital.

The benefit is Liberty Christian’s biggest fundraiser every year. The more money raised, the less likely the school will have to raise tuition.

About 350 people attended in 2013, so the committee decided to hold the event in the former Sears building at Mounds Mall.

Brazel said several food trucks will be on hand. Ahh, Burritos, Big Easy Cajun, Karma Kitchen and Good’s Ice Cream will sell food at the event. The vendors will then donate a portion of what they make to the school.

More than 200 items will be auctioned off. Items up for bid vary from gift certificates to being a vet for a day at a Lapel veterinarian office. Preseason Colts tickets, gift baskets, athletic apparel, Thirty One bags, lunch with the mayor, passes to Cedar Point and spa packages are among things available.
