Live Auction during
Sunday Dinner at Rassawek
September 16, 2018
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

This year we have 4 unique live auction donations that will be a great addition to our Farm To Table.

1) D. Mitchell of Columbia Virginia is donating a Bee Hive!

Including supers, smoker, bees, everything except the suit. D is a committed member of the community, founding a 501c3 CARE. Columbia Area Renewal Effort. This organization supports community efforts to revitalize the locality of Columbia which has a long history as a vibrant farming and trading center as far back as our country’s colonial period and that of the native Americans.


D will provide technical assistance and processes for the winning bid. As many of you know bees are facing difficulties in our area and world wide. Becoming a steward of a hive nurtures the whole neighborhood. We hope you will bid generously and find out more about this like minded organization.
