Minot Raises Money During Prairie Warrior Auction

Posted: Updated:

The 28th Annual Prairie Warrior Auction is officially underway at the Holiday Inn Riverside in Minot. 

The event is hosted by the Minot Area Chamber of Commerce to help support families at Minot Air Force Base in a variety of ways. From Hostfest to the North Dakota State Fair, the airmen continually add to the community by helping make Minot a better place to live. For the last six to twelve months, Chamber members, local businesses, civilians, and community members have been donating a variety of items to auction off, including gift certificates, bath sets, hand-painted pictures, dishes, and small appliances. In the last 27 years, the group has raised more than a half a million dollars for the Base. 

"You can feel the appreciation," says Prairie Warrior Auction Chairman, Betty Fedorchak. "You know one doesn't do it for glory, it's nothing to do with that. We're just glad that people have cared enough and to see their faces, the commanders are usually delighted because they know that money is going to a great cause."

About two to three hundred people are expected to attend tonight's auction. The group hopes to raise 40 thousand dollars tonight. All of the funds from will be donated to the Base.
