Lladró auction benefits St. James fund

By From page A3 | December 06, 2012

Bids continue to be accepted in an online auction for several hand-crafted porcelain Lladró figurines from Spain. The collectibles were donated by Mike and Sandy Huitt from the Narcissa Peña estate, in her honor.

Proceeds from the auction will support the St. James Catholic Church Memorial Center Fund. The memorial center, at 1275 B St., hosts the annual winter Celebration of Abraham to promote better understanding among the three Abrahamic faiths, as well as a biannual community blood drive. In addition, the center will house Davis’ homeless population as part of the Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter from Dec. 23 to Jan. 5.

St. James is partnering with 3rd Street Jeweler to make the figurines available for viewing at the store, 903 Third St. Call 530-753-5000 for more information. The online auction will run through noon Tuesday.

To access the auction, visit www.32auctions.com/stjamesdavis. Bidders will need to create an account and password. At the close of auction, winning bidders will be able to pay for their items with check or cash at the time of pickup from the jewelry store.

For more information, call the St. James Parish office at 530-756-3636.
