The “Our Time” Tanti group raised over $3,200 last month at their annual Christmas auction for local charities. Each year the group holds an auction with 100% of proceeds going towards projects and people in the Ada area who need it most.

The auction, held this year at the home of Somerlyn Cothran, is the largest fundraiser of the year for the group. “ We are so excited to be able to have the funding to help so many of those in need, especially here during the holiday season,” said Carol Whitesell, President of the group.

The group has given thousands of dollars over the years to charities such as the Kindergarten Coat Fund, Teen Angel Christmas gifts for Ada Junior High, Camp Goddard Scholarships, Salvation Army, Starquest and Compassionate Care Outreach Center. This holiday season the group plans to donate a large portion of their proceeds to those charities providing the much needed necessities to our area children.

“We are fortunate to have such a great group of ladies, who give so generously of their time and financial support. Because of their effort, we have been able to participate in philanthropic activities that are so critical to the local community,” said Whitesell.
