After being forced to cancel last year’s event due to the pandemic, the Henderson Lions Club live auction is back with several amazing items for you to bid on.
The last time the Club held the auction was in February 2020, about a month before COVID hit Tri-State and shut everything down. This edition of the annual fundraiser raised $16,000. Like any nonprofit, the group hopes to top that amount with this year’s event.
The auction will take place at Rookies Sports Bar at 117 2nd Street in Henderson on Saturday, February 19. The evening will begin with a buffet meal at 6:30 p.m. followed by the start of the live auction at 7:00 p.m.
The Club has lined up some great items for this year’s auction, including:
- A stay and play package at Victoria National Golf Club
- A two-night stay in a luxury cabin in Gatlinburg
- One night stay and dinner package at Kentucky Castle
- A Hometown Roots dinner package
- Grand Old Opry Tickets
- Henderson Brewing Company Brewer Experience
- Stihl blower and mower
- Apple Airpods Pro
- Big Green Egg Mini-Max
- A Ring Doorbell system
Proceeds from the event will stay directly in the Henderson community and allow the Lions Club to continue its mission of providing eyeglasses and eye surgeries to those who cannot afford them, as well as eye screenings for local school children and scholarships for the local high school. seniors, as well as grants to non-profit organizations in the region.
Tickets for the auction are $75 each and are available now from Club members.
