Many area residents were at the Sherman House on Sunday for a Coin Paddle Auction hosted by Totes for Tots and Teens (Project T3).

Attendees placed bids with quarters and raised a paddle when they were interested in winning an item donated by local residents, businesses or national organizations.

The money raised goes toward a good cause. Project T3 provides foster children in Southeast Indiana with an overnight bag as they are being placed into foster care. The organization also provides some local children with a backpack and school supplies.

Project T3 serves children in fifteen counties in Southeastern Indiana.

Each spring, the coin paddle auction is held and last year raised nearly $6,000.
