Ever want to try a dish featured in our weekly cooking column? Here’s your chance.
Newton High School will host its inaugural Newton Community Pie Auction on Aug. 11 at Newton High School, 900 W. 12th St.
The doors for the event open at 6:45 p.m., pie-tasting starts at 7 p.m. and pies will be auctioned off at 7:30 p.m.
There will also be a people’s choice component of the event, with people able to vote by putting a dollar into the jar featuring their favorite pie.
Harvey County’s Now’s own Lindsey Young and Adam Strunk will be combining their skills on a chocolate pie recipe to be later featured in Young’s Spice Up Your Life column.
The event will also feature pies from Newton Commissioners Leroy Koehn and Rod Kreie, Norm’s Coffee Bar owner Tami Lakey, KSN News Anchor Carly Willis, North Newton Mayor Ron Braun, NMC President/CEO Val Gleason, Bethel College President Dr. Jon Gering, Newton Chamber Director Pam Stevens, NMC Health Dr. Jennifer Koontz, Sheriff Chad Gay, Newton Police Chief Craig Dunlavy and many more.
The fundraiser benefits the Newton High School Sunshine Club, which strives to spread positivity and appreciation to Newton High School and its stakeholders, according to its description on the event page.
