St. Jude Benefit Auction 2018
Donate, Bid, & Save Lives
Our hearts here at BigIron have always held a special place for St. Jude and the children they treat. Over ten years ago, BigIron held its first annual benefit auctions at Husker Harvest Days farm show in Grand Island, NE. In the last twelve years, BigIron has raised over $500,000 donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
This was made possible not only by those attending and participating in the auction, but by the generous donations from local businesses and vendors at Husker Harvest Days. We reach out to these companies year after year and they contribute items to be auctioned off at the benefit auction being held on the Wednesday of the farm show.
New this Year
For the first time ever, the St. Jude Auction will be held on BigIron's online auction platform - www.BigIron.com. The benefit auction will be a part of BigIron's regular weekly auction during the week of Husker Harvest Days.

About St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Each year, over 15,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with cancer. That’s 15,000 families devastated with news that their little ones are about to fight a terrifying disease and will face surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation, and worse.
For over 50 years, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has been a beacon of hope for these families battling childhood cancer. Families that reach out to St. Jude for help are never charged a penny - not for treatment, travel, housing, or food.
“...Because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.”
Since opening 50 years ago, the advancement of treatments at St. Jude have increased the childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to over 80%. Along with their highly skilled and dedicated faculty and staff, St. Jude has donations to thank for making their life saving mission possible.
Every donation counts to help save the lives of these precious children and aid these families during the most difficult days of their lives.
