Karen Virnoche Hosting Antique Fundraiser for Serenity

Karen Virnoche-Brown Hosting Antique Sale to Benefit Serenity Hospice


Neighbor’s Antiques is hosting a close-out sale and all proceeds benefit Serenity Hospice and Home.  All items must go and the garage sale pricing will shock you!  The sale will be Jan. 21-24 and 28-30 from 9-5 each day.  Neighbor’s is located inside Conover Square shopping center in downtown Oregon (201 N. 3rd St.).  The sale is being organized by Karen Virnoche-Brown and her husband James Brown.


Neighbor’s has been in business for more than 25 years and their inventory is varied and unique.  The sale will include furniture, dishes, teapots, vintage items including purses and kitchenware along with many collectibles.  Too much to mention, but all priced to sell.  Neighbor’s is happy to be able to help Serenity Hospice during these unprecedented times when all of their other fundraisers have had to be canceled. Serenity is a nonprofit hospice serving nine counties in Northern Illinois and they have a hospice home located in Oregon.  For more information and to see some photos of the items, check out Serenity Hospice and Home’s Facebook page or phone 815-732-2499.

James Brown and his wife Karen Virnoche-Brown are hosting the antique fundraiser.  The couple are not new to philanthropic fundraisers having hosted many over the years for local nonprofits.
