73rd ANNUAL HOPKINSVILLE ROTARY AUCTION (NIGHT 3)
A message from the Hopkinsville Rotary Club:
Since 1950, due to the generous support of community donors, funds raised during the Hopkinsville Rotary Auction have provided over $11 million in student loans to local area students to further their post high school education. Since 2012, the auction has also funded the Hopkinsville Community College Rotary Scholars Program, giving local high school graduates the opportunity to attend HCC tuition-free. Since its inception, the Rotary Scholars program has allowed over 1,500 students to take part in this endeavor.
In 2021, the Hopkinsville Rotary Foundation was launched, and at the 72nd Rotary Auction in 2022, we announced $80,000 in grants to various non-profits serving the youth of Christian County. We intend to do the same in 2023!
Scheduled for April 17-22 at the War Memorial Building (1202 S. Virginia Street) in downtown Hopkinsville, this year's Rotary Auction plans to return with the usual diner, sweet shop and in-person viewing/bidding. Our theme this year is "Making an Impact".
Supporters can listen on 98.7 FM, view the live stream on www.HopkinsvilleRotary.com, the Hopkinsville Rotary Facebook page or YouTube Channel, or watch on Spectrum Cable channel 376.
The Auction helps support the Rotary Scholars Program and other youth and education-based efforts in the community. The financial support of our donors not only makes a significant difference in the lives of Christian County students, but it also works to improve the overall quality of the available workforce.
Over the years, this annual auction has grown into the largest single fundraiser in all of Rotary International, so we hope you'll #BidHigh and #BidOften in April!
Lots will begin closing at 8:00 PM CST on April 22, 2023--make sure to submit your max bid amounts so you do not miss out on your items!
