The 62nd Annual WHOP Rotary Radio Auction got off to a positive start last night, though totals are running a little behind last year’s pace.
Part of that has to do with 92 items being sold on the first night of the auction, compared to 100 items last year. Those 92 items netted $7,400 toward Rotary student loans and scholarships.
The General Store did much better on night one than last year bringing in right at 800 dollars, compared to 370 dollars last year. The diner and sweet shop collected $1,343, about the same as the first night from last year—and the Century and Goat Clubs have netted 70 thousand dollars exactly.
Overall, this year’s rotary auction total is at $79,543, which is a little less than 16-hundred dollars behind last year’s number after one night.
