Fellow business owners and others in the community donated all sorts of items to help Kathy Allen.

The owner of Southern Pickers was recently diagnosed with necrotizing pancreatitis.

"It's just amazing to me how wonderful this community has been to my aunt and to my family and to everyone. The out-pour of love is just a wonderful feeling," said Skyle Hall, Kathy's niece.

The auction starts Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m., and will be handled by the 2015 state auctioneer of the year, Sherry Spence from 3-G's Auction Company in Sumner.
