2009 Auction Wrap Up

Our 49th Annual Searcy Lions Club Auction is in the books. Thanks to all who called in bids and made this years auction a huge success. We raised $10,706 that will help the blind and visually impaired in Searcy with glasses and eye exams.

The Auction is our largest fundraiser of the year and it takes many parties coming working together. In addition to those who called in and bid on items, we wish to thank:
TV-16 for donating their studios and expertise, especially Mark Prior and Grant Dillion
95.3 KVHU for broadcasting us on the radio
The Daily Citizen for printing our item list this past Saturday and Sunday.
The Searcy businesses which donated items for auction. Many of them have helped us for years!

Look for us again next year!
