Thanks to the Atmore community and businesses the LA Bikers' Toys for Tots was a huge success.
The auction raised over $1600. 00 for our tots. We also had a number of businesses donate money for the tots. This will be a very nice start to buy Christmas gifts.
Thanks to some of our familiar faces in town such as Atmore's mayor, Howard Shell, Buck Powell, school superintendent, Betty Warren, Huxford School principal made the auction exciting.
Also, a big thanks goes out to our very own auctioneer, Jim Staff. He did a great job and got the highest bid for each item.
