A lunch with U.S. Sen. William V. Roth Jr. and Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. followed by a White House tour is one of the items that will be on the auction block when Bidding on the Brandywine opens Sunday at the Du Pont Country Club. Proceeds from the upscale auction go to Emmanuel Dining Rooms, the three Wilmington locations that served 173,620 free meals to the hungry last year. This is the eighth annual fund-raising auction. Its goal is 4100,000. If you don't feel like doing lunch, you can bid on a new installed patio and do some entertaining of your own. There will be a silent auction and a live one. The silent auction will include artworks, vacation trips and dinners. The live auction includes a coin collection worth more than $2,000, a numbered duck-print stamp collection worth more than $2,000, a Charles Parks sculpture of St. Francis, jewelry, the installed patio and an installed bathroom. Admission to the 5 p.m. auction is $35. It includes an open bar, hors d'oeuvres and entertainment. Call 652-3228 for tickets or information. Brother Ronald Giannone, executive director of the Ministry of Caring, which runs the dining rooms, said all three are busier than usual this time of the month when food stamps and welfare checks run out. "While the economy has improved for most people, it has not gotten better for the poor. We're feeling the effects of the lack of affordable housing in Delaware," he said.
