Dinner and an auction benefiting the northwest Missouri chapter of the DREAM Factory is among the features during Missouri Day weekend in Trenton. The public event on Friday October 19th will include a spaghetti supper starting at 5:30 and the auction of painted and decorated chairs to follow, about 7:30. All are held at the Trenton Elks Lodge.


Tickets are being sold for the dinner at a cost of eight dollars per adult; five dollars for children from six to 12 years old; and free for kids five and younger.
Members of the public will be bidding on the donated items with more than 40 to be sold at auction. There are some 20 artists involved who donated their time in decorating/painting.
Long time volunteer for the DREAM factory, Ron Dougan of Trenton, says persons can view many of the chairs which are on display in offices at 903 Main and 905 Main in downtown Trenton—and at some other locations in Trenton.
Trenton Resident Ron Dougan has been affiliated with the northwest Missouri chapter of the DREAM Factory for more than 20 years. Dougan told Open Line Moderator Steve Maxey that he's closing in on a personal milestone of seeing that 100 dreams come true for northwest Missouri children.
Dougan stated the DREAM factory organization was founded in 1980 but now has 37 chapters in 19 states including seven in Missouri.
Dougan explains the greatest majority of the funds, 90%, raised goes to support the
dreams of the critically and chronically ill children . In 2011, Dougan said the northwest Missouri chapter ranked seventh in the
country in the number of dreams full-filled for the children.
