The Tennessee Log A Load For Kids Committee, under the sponsorship of the Tennessee Forestry Association, hosted its first-ever equipment auction in Kingston, Tennessee on March 1. Over 300 people attended the auction, and almost 400 items were auctioned off, raising over $64,000. Tri-State Auction of Kingston, Tennessee managed the auction, including advertising the sale in advance and encouraging donations. During the auction, Tennessee Log A Load volunteers sold food, Log A Load shirts and caps, and raffle tickets for a chain saw donated by Husqvarna. The event was great for families attending and for the children at the various CMN hospitals that will benefit from the funds raised. (Tri-State Auction has conducted Log A Load For Kids equipment auctions in North Carolina, too.
