Paperman to serve as auctioneer at Oct. 2 Dessert Extravaganza


September 22, 2016

Jean Schwafel, the Chairman of St. Peter’s Dessert Extravaganza with its Live & Silent Auction, announce earlier this week that Dave Paperman will serve as this year’s Auctioneer. This community inspired fundraiser will be held in the Community Room at the Library/Museum complex, corner of Adams & Sixth Ave, Sunday, Oct. 2, from 1-4 p.m.

“Our own member, Ron Long, will be unable to be our auctioneer this year due to work related business and we are delighted that Dave has agreed to step-in and help us,” said Schwafel, noting area residents would not want to miss the opportunity to see this bearded man “strut–his-stuff” in the perennial live auction dress.

“It should make for some spirited bidding,” she said.

A $5 ticket donation can be purchased from any St. Peter’s member or can be purchased at the door on Oct. 2. The donations individuals to sample some of the best homemade desserts ever created.

St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, one of the oldest buildings in Seward, has always received generous support from the community since it was started 112 years ago. Schwafel said the church’s members are appreciative of the community’s support and help.

“We are still blessed with members of the community generously giving of their time, talent and funds,” she said.

Handmade quilts have been graciously donated by local quilters. Junior Warden, Valerie Rose, has been spearheading the effort in collecting donations from local businesses.

“We now have over 100 Silent and Live Auction items for your bidding pleasure, including a variety of items from members of the community,” she said.

The following is only a partial list of some of the local businesses who have charitably donated items for the auction: Alaska Shop, Urbach’s, Breeze Inn, GCI, Once in a Blue Moose, The Grazing Moose, AK Railroad, Starbird Studio, Apollo’s, Eureka Pizza, Adventure 60 North, Spenard Builders, Discover Harmony, Fish House, Terry’s Tires, No Sweatt Auto, plus many, many more.

Schwafel encouraged local residents to attend the auctions and help preserve our history for the future.
