Auction, Raffle and Taste of Local Cuisine
July 18

Morris Bank was the Platinum Sponsor of the 30th Annual Auction, Raffle and Taste of Local Cuisine held July 18.

Miss Georgia, Betty Cantrell drew the grand prize raffle winners. The first place prize went to Edmund Olson of Macon. Olson gets his choice of $30,000 cash or one of eight new cars or trucks from Warner Robins car dealers. Airman First Jonathan Miller of Port Orange, FL won the second place prize of $3,000 and Kristen Nichols of Kathleen won the $1,000 third prize.

The event was a big success with more than 300 items auctioned off and 30 restaurants and caterers providing a Taste of Local Cuisine to a crowd of more than 1,000 attendees.

Profit from the event goes to support the operation and development of the Museum of Aviation which provides Science, Technology, Engineering and Math programs for more than 50,000 students and teachers each year.

“The Museum thanks the hundreds of businesses and individuals that donated items, food and hard work to make this event a big success,” said Pat Bartness, President and Chief Operation Officer of the Museum of Aviation Foundation. “We had great support this year from a large volunteer committee of workers headed up by Chair Steve Davison, owner of Clean Control; Procurement Chair Jimmy Autry, Flint Energies; and Raffle Chair Margaret Cox, Alion Science and Technology, and many other volunteers from Robins Air Force Base and the community.”
