The 68th WHOP Rotary Radio Auction resumes tonight, with items on the “big board” to be sold.
After one night, the auction has brought in $72,748—about $1,100 less than the one-night total from 2017. Numbers provided show 102 items sold last night for just over $8,000, the diner and sweet shop brought in $1,900 and the Hour and Goat club donations total about $62,300—which is $800 off last year’s pace.
Kiley Killebrew is the auction chair and says there are several popular items on the first unveiling of the first big board of the week.
The country store remains open in the Memorial Building lobby and it concludes tomorrow night the mini-auction.
Lunch begins today during auction week and dinner is served each night. The auction resumes tonight from 7 until 10 o’clock on Lite Rock 98.7 and online at lite987whop.com. You can also watch on Cable Channel 12 and on the rotary club’s website.
All money raised this week goes to the Rotary Scholars program and to the Rotary student loan program.
