An auction to raise funds for the infant daughter of Northwest late model champion Erick Hargraves will be Saturday at the Wapato Community Center.
Allison Hargraves was born several weeks premature and is suffering from an enlarged heart, spleen and liver, as well as lung issues. She was born Oct. 27 and is currently receiving specialized care at Emmanuel Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Portland.
Saturday’s event begins at noon with a chili feed, followed by silent and live auctions.
Among the items available to bid on are tickets to some of the Northwest’s premier late model events, racing memorabilia and vinyl decal packages for race cars. There will also be a set of Hoosier Racing tires for the 2013 Apple Cup at Yakima Speedway, tickets for the Seattle Seahawks’ Dec. 9 home game against the Arizona Cardinals, an autographed Richard Petty Driving Experience drivers suit, David Regan-autographed T-shirts, and gift certificates from local businesses, including Jean’s Cottage Inn and Pizza Time.
A complete list of bid items is posted on Baby Allie’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/BabyAllieHargraves.
All proceeds will go to help cover Allison’s hospital costs.
A fund has also been set up by the non-profit Yakima Free Cakes for Kids at Yakima Federal Savings and Loan at 118 E. Yakima Ave. All donations are tax deductible.
