The group has come together once again for a special Quarter Auction to help raise funds for our Community Partner Nickle Creek's Annual Take A Child Fishing Derby This is a one day event that promotes fishing to the youths in the community. Offering a day of events free too youths 2-15 and family. A full lunch is provided as well as awards for achievement, grand prizes and prize bags for all 200+ children. The event provides approximately 1400 hot dogs. A cooler will be available at the auction and guests are asked to donate packages of hot dogs to receive an extra paddle. Doors open at 6pm and the fun begins at 7pm. Admission is $5 and includes 3 paddles. Here is a short description of what a Quarter Auction is.. It's a lot like bingo! You pay a $5 admission which gives you your choice of three paddles with numbers on them. Each paddle has an assigned number and a matching velcro numbered chip attached to it. The chip from your paddle goes into a bowl and you keep the paddle. There will be a table with at least 50 items available for you to win. Each item is usually a min of 25¢ to bid. Each paddle is equal to a single bid. When an item comes up for bid you put that bid amount (25¢) into a cup on the table for each paddle you want to take a chance on. You can bid using all your paddles or just 1 or 2. If your number chip is pulled from the bowl and you have your paddle in the air with that number on it for that item, then you win that item. however if you chose not to bid on a paddle and your number is called... you must call out NO BID! Food & drink is also available from the volunteers working in the Elks kitchen. So please do not bring any outside food or drinks to the auction.
