A lunch and silent auction is being held Sunday, Sept. 25 to raise money for the 153rd Engineer Battalion to make a trip back to South Dakota for the Christmas holiday.

The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Armory on the South Dakota State Fairgrounds. A homemade roast beef meal will be sold for $8.

The fundraising goal is $110,000 to bring the nearly 160 soldiers back to South Dakota from Texas for the holidays.
