Lions’ annual auction is Friday
Plans are underway for the Gainesville Lions Club’s 31st annual auction and sportsman raffle, to be held Friday, April 20, at Gainesville High School. This year’s “sportsman’s raffle,” held in conjunction with the auction, includes 14 firearms, a gun safe, a kayak, a utility trailer, game feeder and other items.
Tickets for the raffle are $50 each, and only 300 will be sold. Multiple winners’ names will be drawn through the live-auction event April 20, with each winner getting to select from the remaining items. Raffle tickets may be purchased at any Century Bank of the Ozarks location or from Gainesville Lions Club members.
The April 20 event begins with dinner at 6 p.m. and a silent auction at 6:15 p.m., followed by the main auction at 7 p.m. A $1 ticket donation includes a chili dinner, including cinnamon rolls and other baked items, and entry into several free drawings.
The live auction will include new items and services such as lawn and garden implements, power tools, clothing, baked goods, dining and shopping gift cards, pontoon boat trips, art and novelty items including a framed set of Augusta National Golf Club and a framed set of Stan Musial photos, plus auto needs and food items. All items are donated by local businesses and private donors.
Proceeds from the auction and raffle will benefit the summer ball program and Lions Club projects.
