About a dozen carvers have been working hard since late May to put together over 20 carvings to be auctioned off. 
 
The auction will be August 15 at the handicapped development center on Brady Street in Davenport.
 
It's the 10th and last year for the  'Carvers for a Cause' event. Proceeds go to people with disabilities at the Handicapped Development Center. Last year's event raised more than $6,000. Organizer Thom Gleich Hopes for similar succes this time.
 
"We would love to have a similar amount, and one of the keys is for people to come out and be willing to bid on items, and purchase them, because the monies really do go to a good cause," Gleich said.  
 
 The fundraiser will event will be at the handicapped development center on Brady Street on August 15. The auction starts just after 6:00 pm.
