Antique show in Minocqua raises money for handicapped students
MINOCQUA (WAOW) -- Old artwork, jewelry and all sorts of trinkets were laid out for sale in Minocqua on Saturday.
The antique show was at Lakeland Union High School.
Organizers say at least 500 people browsed through the wide variety of goods.
Money raised at the door will go toward a scholarship for cognitive-delayed students.
Organizers remember fondly what the show was able to do for one boy a few years ago.
"He won the scholarship but he wasn't going to go to school," said Judy Fuchsen, the show's coordinator for more than 20 years. "He got a job but he'd always have to take a taxi cab because he couldn't drive so we got him a really great bicycle and he was so thrilled that he's now just working great with that."
Another antique show at the school in August will raise money for the Special Olympics.
