A very big THANK YOU Lowe's Compaines, Inc. of the Des Moines metro for making this event great by donating all of our auction items. Our auctioneers can showcase their talent while working to help benefit three children’s hospitals. Each year the sales of the auction items will be donated to one of the three children's hospitals on a rotating basis - Blank Children’s Hospital of Des Moines, University of Iowa Children’s Hospital and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
