Phipp’s Auction House, in Stoutland, went up in flames, late yesterday. The Phipp’s Auction House was the auction house that had collected half the donations for a Camp Barnabas fundraiser and the owners are now asking for your help.
Karen Phipps had collected half of what she needed for an October fundraiser for Camp Barnabas. She ran back into the burning building– twice– but most everything is gone.
The Phipps still wanted to hold their auction, even after the fire, but didn’t know where they’d hold their auction, because they needed a place at least as large as their former auction house…4,000 square feet. They wound up getting the local elementary school gym, cafeteria and hallways…an even bigger space.
And donations have been pouring in to help the Phipps.
The fundraiser will be held the same date and time, Otober 13th from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. The phipps are still looking for donations, so if you’d like to make one, call either 417-588-5118 or 417-286-3208.
