PEKIN - Sold to the highest bidder!

The Pekin AMBUCS held its biggest fundraiser of the year Friday night.

The organization has been holding the charity auction for 43 years.

From gift certificates to cars - everything was sold off in a live auction setting.

Everything was donated by AMBUCS members or people in the community.

The money raised will go to the local charities, including the Pekin Boys and Girls Club, YWCA, and AmTrykes.

"It's a lot of fun," said Auction Chairman Bill Calvert. "We just really have a good time. We really appreciate the support of all the folks coming out tonight. We got a really good turnout, and we are excited."

AMBUCS also gave away the 100th AmTryke at Friday night's auction.
