Members of the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition Youth Garden crew work on a new garden at the Old Mill Center's Relief Nursery with a group of pre-school students in 2015. The Old Mill Center's annual auction and dinner is May 12.

The annual auction for the Old Mill Center for Children and families is May 12 at the CH2M Hill Alumni Center, 725 SW 26th St. in Corvallis.

The event runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and costs $75. The deadline to register is May 2. You can purchase tickets online at www.oldmillcenter.org and get more information by calling 541-757-8068 or by emailing kate_caldwell@oldmillcenter.org.

The center has been serving children and families with special needs or challenges since 1977 and this is its 38th auction.

The big prize, as always, is a vehicle purchased and donated by longtime supporter Jerry Duerksen of Duerksen and Associates. There still are raffle tickets available, which cost $100. Event organizers are stopping sales at $410 tickets and the Old Mill gets to use all $41,000.

The event also offers a “pay it forward” auction that allow bidders who win items to donate them back to Old Mill Center. There also is a straight cash donation “pay it forward” segment. Last year $2,480 was raised and used for classroom supplies, gas cards for individuals to get to interviews, electric bills, rental assistance, emergency child care, soccer league fees and other needs.
