WARRENTON - The board of directors of Warrenton Kids Inc. and community members are pulling together to host their second annual Dinner and Benefit Auction Sept. 24 in Warrior Hall at Rilea Armed Forces Training Center.

The silent auction will begin at 5 p.m., with dinner at 6:15 p.m., followed by the live auction at 7:15 p.m. Dinner tickets are $25 each and available at Warrenton High School, Warrenton Grade School, or from student athletes and must be purchased in advance.

All proceeds from this "Let's Play Ball" event will go towards funding the athletic programs for approximately 350 student athletes.

The generosity of the community in the first year of this event made it possible to pay $49,000 to cover the expenses of the athletic programs for 2004-2005.

Funding for these athletic programs has been cut for boys and girls in seventh through 11th grades at Warrenton Grade School and High School for the 2005-2006 school year.

WKI is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization and donations are tax-deductible.

For more information, contact Don Patterson at 861-9879.
