Douglass East Side Senior Citizens' Center raises more than $5,000 in online bake sale

DUNCAN, Ok (RNN Texoma) - The Douglass East Side Senior Citizens' Center raised more than $5,000 in its online bake sale auction.

They asked participants to post their baked goods on Facebook for people to bid on. On Wednesday, Adrianne Arrington, the baker who received the highest bid, was given a trophy. Her banana pudding cake brought in $1,250. But she says the community is the real winner.

"Unity is what it means..my neighborhood..my community and that I can just help them in a really strong way. Douglass is a piece of history in our community and it needs to continue to be a safe haven for people to come to." Arrington said.

The money raised from the bake sale will be used to implement new activities for the seniors. The center's director says she is thankful for the community's support and plans to make this an annual event.
