Kiwanis Auction is only a month away

By Ken Stone


If your excitement turned to stunned perplexing disappointment, after opening a Christmas present, salvation is here. Your crummy present is another person’s treasure and you can make it happen by donating it to the Kiwanis Charity Auction. But, you have to do it by Jan. 13. That’s the last day items will be taken that will be promoted and advertised.
Get ready for the charity auction. The auction goes live at 6 p.m. with the featured items selling at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 3 and 4 at the Williamstown City Building.  
You can be in the audience or you can watch it on Williamstown Cable TV channel 16 or Insight Cable TV channel 21.  You can pass the word to your friends and family around the world that they can watch the auction live at www.heloit.com/live-video.
Don’t wait for a Kiwanis member to ask you for a donation. Call Dennis Stanley at 859-393-8366, or email dstanley@fuse.net and he can accept your item and give you all the details. For larger priced items or services ask Dennis about the reserve price and how you can receive part of the sale. For those of you who like to take long motorcycle vacations call me about the featured 1998 Honda Goldwing. Consider this your official notice to plan your auction parties. Invite your family and friends to your house to watch the auction and to enjoy the bidding wars.
You can pay for your item with cash, check or credit card and pick it up at the Williamstown City Building the evening of the auction. Arrangements will be made for pickups later in the week or if the item needs to be shipped elsewhere in the world. During the auction you will also be able to purchase tickets to the Northern Kentucky Wrestling Federations return event coming to the Williamstown High School gymnasium on Feb. 11. Watch the Grant County News for more wrestling details. Here are some new items up for auction this year, Police Shooting Range for 2; Autographed Football from Artrell Hawkins; Sail through the air with a Zip-Line Experience; Gold Coin with 1 oz. of gold; 2.3 oz. Silver Coin from Ground Zero; One of only 262 “The Manifesto” Boxed Cigars; Riverbend Pavilion Tickets; and much more. A complete list will be published in the Grant County News and Express on Jan. 30 and Feb. 2.
