Crye-Leike, Realtors announce the company's Mt. Juliet branch office will host its 6th annual Martin Cummings Sweet Tooth Auction benefiting the United Way of Wilson County.
"We will be selling and auctioning all kinds of pies, cakes, cookies, Barbara Parrish's famous fruit tea and lots of other sweet tooth items. You name it and we usually have it, and this year we will be auctioning other items besides sweets," said Crye-Leike Affiliate Broker Joann Pucciarelli. "We invite the public to join us, as we do each year for this fun event and fund raiser."
The auction will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 22, at the Crye-Leike Mt. Juliet branch office located at 1285 North Mt. Juliet Road. The event will begin with breakfast being served at 9 a.m. and the auction willstart at 10 a.m.
"We want to personally invite everyone in the community to our office to drop off baked goods, have breakfast, bid on and buy lots of goodies and have a wonderful time while helping support United Way of Wilson County," Pucciarelli. "In previous years we have raised thousands of dollars, and with the community's help we hope this will be our best year ever."
The auction in 2008 raised $3,926 to benefit United Way. This year's funds will go to local United Way of Wilson County charities including the Mt. Juliet Senior Center and the Mt. Juliet Help Center.
The auction is named in memory of the late Martin Cummings who was the first Managing Broker of the Crye-Leike, REALTORS Mt. Juliet office.
"Martin always stressed to us to give back to the community and that is what our office has always tried to do," Pucciarelli said. "I know he would be thrilled to see how successful this auction has been in honor of him."
