Kiwanis gearing up for auction
Published 8:54 am Tuesday, February 6, 2018
For more than 30 years, the Kiwanis Club of Winchester has auctioned items of all kinds and price ranges to fund its programs that support children in Clark County.
This year will be no different.
The annual auction is slated to begin Thursday evening, with hopes of raising about $15,000 to support the Kiwanis mission, said Russ Morrison, club secretary and marketing representative.

The auction will be from 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday and Friday and from 10 a.m. until the last item is sold (typically around 1 p.m.) Saturday. Bidders can keep up with the more than 300 donated items to be auctioned by watching a livestream at winchester.portalbuzz.com, listening on WKYN 107.7 or watching Spectrum cable channel 5.
Before the auction, a complete list of items will be printed in The Winchester Sun, and photos of items will be posted to the Winchester Kiwanis Facebook page.
Morrison said items range from gift certificates to area restaurants and tickets to amusement parks or entertainment venues to a tri-axle truck loaded with gravel and delivered to the highest bidders. There are also electronics like multiple laptops and a 40-inch HD television.
Proceeds from the auction will help fund the newly-formed Key Club at George Rogers Clark High School, Builders Club at Campbell Junior High School and K-Clubs at two local elementary schools.
The majority of the funds will continue to support the BUG (Bringing Up Grades) program and the annual Walk With A Child.
Morrison said donations of items to be auctioned and volunteers are still needed. For more information, email email@example.com.
