Texas Democratic Women of Ellis County would like to invite everyone to shop early for Christmas at its online auction at https://www.biddingowl.com/TXDWofEllisCounty.

The auction began on Monday and will run until noon Dec. 15. Although bidding is online, items may be viewed at 215 Main Street, Waxahachie on Nov. 27 and Dec. 10. A member will be on hand to log any bids and answer any questions.

TDW of Ellis County has several programs that it funds as an investment in the community, one of which is the TDW Scholarship Fund. This year TDW presented four scholarships, three to seniors at Waxahachie High School and one to a senior from Global High School. TDW also contributes to a program, North Ellis County Outreach, that serves the underprivileged in Ellis County. 

“Again this year, due to the still prevalent COVID-19 we have been limited in our fundraising but we feel it is important to continue our programs,” TDW treasurer Lynda Begnaud said. “Therefore we invite you to our auction site to purchase those special Christmas gifts for the people in your life. We hope you will be generous and help us pursue our goals so we may continue to do more for the youth and citizens of Ellis County.“
