“It’s such a great community event. We receive our auction items from generous donations by local businesses, industries and individuals. All the proceeds are used to provide charitable donations throughout the community, and we recognize our sponsors at the time of auction,” said Cullman Rotary Club Fundraising Chair Eli Howard.
This popular annual event is the Rotary Club's primary fundraiser, and it supports the organization's service to the community throughout the year.
“We raised over $50,000 last year that helped to support local charities and projects here in Cullman. Rotarians always work hard to make the Rotary Auction a success, and we appreciate all of the community support that makes this event successful year in and year out,” said Cullman Rotary Club President Perry Shields.
