For the past eight years, Louie has had the opportunity to volunteer his time as an auctioneer at the Association of Iowa Fairs State Conference’s Social A’Fair and Auction. On Saturday, Dec. 12, he once again helped at the event, serving as one of many auctioneers.
“I enjoy helping at the convention’s charity auction each year because it is a great time with other fair members and we are able to poke fun at ourselves and everyone involved, while also raising money for a good cause,” said Louie.
This year’s Social A’Fair and Auction theme was “throwback.” In order to bring the theme to life, Louie also took part in a skit based off the old television show “Hee Haw.”
At the conclusion of this year’s auction, $30,293 was raised and will be used to better the fair industry in Iowa.
