House of Lazarus (HOL)’s annual Live Summer Auction is back! On Friday, September 13, the Mountain-based mission will once again be hosting a live auction of unique items—some new, some used, some vintage, some antique. Peter Ross Auction Services Ltd. is returning this year to lend their professional expertise to this fundraising event.
