Sheryl, Lance & the Desperate Housewives....All Available in Region 8

October 28, 2005 – Posted at 1:26 p.m. CDT

KENNETT, MO -- Some of the biggest names in Hollywood will be for sale this weekend, right here in Region 8, and it's all for a good cause. The Delta Children's Home in Kennett is having its annual fundraiser auction on Sunday.

From the King of Queens to Hagrid from Harry Potter...owning a little piece of Hollywood is within reach.

“Letters are sent out to celebrities and different patrons in the community to remind them the auction is coming up, that way we have time to get items in,” said Auction Co-Chair Charolyn Hilburn.

All it takes is asking...celebs like Steffi Graff, Peter Max and Cedric the Entertainer were more than happy to help out a good cause.

“We've got some great items donated by our local celebrity, Sheryl Crow. We’ve got an autographed CD and t-shirt. She’s also sending us clothes that she's worn professionally,” said Jill Mobley of the Delta Children’s Home.

Outfits from Crow’s "Soak Up the Sun," "C'mon, C'mon" and "First Cut" videos will be up for grabs. And of course, plenty of Lance Armstrong memorabilia...including a cycling jersey. But the real jewel of the auction: a cast photo of Desperate Housewives...signed by everyone.

“We count on it for one-third of our operating budget. We’re hoping to raise a little over $35,000 dollars in one afternoon,” said Hilburn.

And its big bucks well spent. The Delta Children's Home operates yearly on a $100,000 budget.

“It's just a safe place at any time in the day or night children can be housed to...pretty much questions not asked and we take care of them temporarily, of course, until they can find another place to live,” said Hilburn.

“We try to make them comfortable, we see to their physical needs, their spiritual needs. and we take the best care we can until they are placed in a foster home or returned back to their natural home,” said Mobley.

The auction will be held Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. at the American Legion Building on Highway 412 in Kennett. A bake sale will kick things off at 12:30 p.m. and of course, the admission is free.
