HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- The 45th annual Kansas Mennonite Relief Sale raised more than $400,000.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/13ikM25 ) that last weekend's sale at the Kansas State Fairgrounds in Hutchinson brought in $469,000. The money goes to the Mennonite Relief Committee, a world-relief organization.

The Kansas organization says a 1942 Studebaker sold for $14,750, and the quilt auction raised about $120,000 from more than 250 items. More than 30 quilts were sold for $1,000 or more. A "Broken Star" quilt made by the Yoder Amish Church sold for $5,000.

The general auction raised about $66,000. The organization says its 2014 sale is scheduled for April 11 and 12.
