The 4th annual Pie Auction kicked off an evening to remember for members of the Southern Ohio War Memorial Foundation (SOWMF) as well as all that attended. The evening started with great food — homemade chicken noodles, hamburgers, coleslaw, chips and Ron Caldwell’s sauce and hot dogs.

As the event began, Scott Mains have a presentation about pies. Bet you didn’t know that National PI Day is March 14 due to the mathematical month and day format 3/14. The crowd walked away from knowing more about pie than they likely expected.
At 5:30, Norm Allen from Allen Auction Company, of Minford, led the auction, getting people to empty their pockets and checkbooks. One pie sold for $460.
Throughout the pie auction, there were jokes that trickled through the entire event.
Then the Appalachian Christian Hillbilly Band started their performance. They too kept the attendees laughing with clever jokes followed by a performance of God Bless America and Amazing Grace performance.
The night went smooth due to the Valley High School National Honor Society students volunteering their time to help.
The event was made possible through help from volunteers that worked at the event as well as the ones that donated the food and other items.
The night brought in well over $6,000 with all the donations and all the generosity of the community. Donations are still being taken for the way memorial. To donate, visit there group’s GoFundMe at gf.me/u/g97qxp. Or donate through AmazonSmile. With every eligible purchase, 0.5% goes to SOWMF. Finally, donations can be made through the Kroger Community Rewards program with a % of every purchase being donated to the SOWMF.
