Ronnie Gross, of Gross’ Orchard, and Warren Radford, a partner in McCraw Auction Company, are teaming up to host a fundraiser to buy toys for children who won’t be getting much, if anything, for Christmas. The effort is called Toys for Kids.
According to Gross, Radford came up with the idea. Gross said Radford was looking for a way that he could use his talents as an auctioneer to give back to the community. The idea of raising money to buy toys came from Julie Hertig, a local teacher.
