DUNCAN — The annual Christmas Auction raised more than $32,000 to help clothe Duncan children. On Saturday, the auction shopping purchased clothes for 305 children (about $100 per child).

Thursday, families who were unable to make it to Saturday’s shopping day will get an opportunity to get clothing shopping in for the remaining children. This make up shopping day will be from 5 to 6 p.m. Thursday at Wal-Mart and Payless Shoes.

The annual auction, which helps raise the funds, took place during the first week of December. The auction has been a Duncan tradition for more than 50 years, having been founded by the Duncan Rotary Club.
