Volunteers in Mission Auction: The Volunteers in Mission Goods & Services Auction is the primary fundraiser for the EG United Methodist Church's annual Volunteers in Mission Trip. For the past 20 years, a work team of high school students and adult volunteers has traveled to Johns Island, S.C., during February school vacation to rebuild homes of those in need as identified by the Rural Mission of The Sea Islands. The silent auction and item preview at the church begin at 6 tonight. The live auction begins at 7. There is no admission charge and complementary child care is available. Food items, donated by Greenwich Bay Gourmet, Greenwich Pizzeria & Marketplace, and church members, will be offered free of charge. All are welcome — encouraged! — to come. Get some great deals and help these missioners.
