Lions Club auction reset for June 20 in GHS stadium

This Kansas City Chiefs helmet autographed by star quarterback Patrick Mahomes will be up for sale during the Lions Club live auction event Saturday, June 20.

The annual Gainesville Lions Club Auction, originally scheduled for Friday, April 17, and postponed due to safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday, June 20. 

The event will be held outside at Benton F. Breeding Stadium on the Gainesville High School campus to allow for social distancing. If it rains, the auction will be held the following Saturday, June 27. 

The chili dinner that has traditionally accompanied the auction won’t be served this year, but the school’s famous cinnamon rolls, along with drinks, will be available for a donation to all who attend.

This year’s raffle, held in conjunction with the auction, includes 14 firearms, a gun safe, a kayak, a flying drone and other items. Tickets are still available, and only 300 will be sold. Multiple winners’ names will be drawn throughout the live-auction event, with each winner getting to select from the remaining items. Raffle tickets may be purchased from any Century Bank of the Ozarks location or from Gainesville Lions Club members.

The live auction includes a Kansas City Chiefs helmet autographed by star quarterback Patrick Mahomes and many other items and services donated by local businesses and individuals.

Proceeds from the auction and raffle will benefit the summer ball program, scholarships and other Lions Club projects.

For more information, call Bill Trivitt or Chris Harlin at Century Bank, 679-3321.
