Radio Auction nets over $8K for Boys' and Girls' Club
The Annual Boys & Girls Club's Radio Auction hit the airwaves on Saturday, November 19, in the lobby of Morgantown Bank & Trust. Bruce White and Jason Jones kicked things off on WLBQ 101.5 FM at 8:00 a.m. and the phones started ringing. By the end of the auction, the total raised was $8,626.50.
The money will be used for the day-to-day operations of the local club.
"We want to thank everyone who donated items, worked the auction and called in bids. The community response has been overwhelming," said Amanda White, Boys & Girls Club Director.
The top-dollar item was a handmade knife by Phillip Johnson. In addition, cakes, candy, haircuts, UK basketball tickets, and gift cards hit the auction block.
"We're always glad to support the Boys and Girls Club," said John Embry, speaking on behalf of WLBQ. "The club is a great organization that does tremendous good for the children of Butler County. WLBQ and Beech Tree News are all about supporting this community."
