After buying several ornaments, Heather Dion of Auburn replaces them with more on a tree at Gritty McDuff’s in Auburn on Thursday night. “I buy them every year and wanted to come again this year to support my former neighbor,” she said. Brayden Bashaw, 13, a seventh-grader from Auburn, is hoping to raise more than $8,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and other local charities by selling the handmade ornaments and dozens of donated items in a silent auction, in addition to proceeds from a raffle.
