With two nights left in the 63rd Annual WHOP Rotary Radio Auction, there's still a little ground to make up to catch last year's numbers.
A total of 124 items were sold last night for about $10,300—about $900 better than Thursday of last year. The diner and sweet shop brought in about $3,700 and the Hour Club and Goat Club received just over $26,000.
The Hour and Goat clubs are where the most ground needs to be made up, as a total of $120,000 has been brought in between them--$12,000 less than last year's pace after four nights. It takes a donation of at least $140, the cost of one credit hour at Hopkinsville Community College, to become a member of the Hour Club and any cash donation will make you a Goat Club member.
The auction gets started at 7 tonight at the War Memorial Building and goes through 10. you can hear it live on Newstalk 95.3 FM, 1230 AM and online at whopam.com.
The always popular catfish plates can be bought for eight dollars, though they are of course “while supplies last.” Tomorrow night will be the final evening of the auction, when the selling will continue until all items are gone.
