Pie Auction in Madison County

Last Friday the Madison County chapter held a pie auction and square dance to raise funds for KFTC and Radical Action Mountain People (RAMPS). Dozens of people from Berea showed up at the event, packing the basement of Berea's Union Church to join in on the fun. A large band of local artists including Berea College students played for the square dance, the MC leading the dancers through several circle dances and square dances for about an hour. During a break in the dancing, the participants settled into the pie auction, where community members gave competing bids in an attempt to win one of the pies that had been donated to the event.

The winning bids on the donated pies ranged from $8 to a whopping $75. The pies donated to the auction included traditional favorites like lemon meringue and pumpkin and more unique offerings like Greek spinach pie and spicy sausage apple maple quiche. At the end of the auction, more than $720 had been raised, which was split evenly between KFTC and RAMPS. The event lasted well into the night, with some proud victors leaving with delicious homemade pies.
