JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WHAS11)—The Jeffersonville Census Bureau kicked off the holiday shopping season Thursday night, Nov. 21, with an annual auction to benefit the WHAS Crusade For Children.
Employees decorated the bureau’s office building like Santa’s workshop and offered guests an early jump on gift buying with baskets, trees and a tailgate bench fashioned from a Ford F-150 tailgate.
The 26th annual auction will boost the total contribution from the Census Bureau to more than $200,000. The tailgate bench won the prize for most creative and sold for $1,000.
