Lawrence County 4-H Auction a Huge Success
Posted: April 19, 2011
The 11th Annual Lawrence County 4-H Auction was held on March 26 at the New Englander. The event set multiple records, including a record crowd with over 300 registered bidders. Our other record, which is just as important, is a profit of over $26,000! All items in our auction were donated by local businesses. The Lawrence County 4-H would like to send out a tremendous thank you to all of the business that supported our fund raiser by donating items to the auction as well as to all of the people that came out to support the auction. The Lawrence County 4-H would never be able to provide the quality program to our county’s youth without the support of the businesses, the people, and the community.
The proceeds from this event will benefit the entire Lawrence County 4-H/Youth Development Program. Monies raised will be used to cover the cost of the county program, provide members with scholarships to attend regional, state, and national leadership and citizenship development events, and to provide educational programs and resources for our 3,000+ members, volunteers, and 4-H school enrichment programs reaching at-risk youth in Lawrence County. The 4-H is entirely volunteer run with all dollars going directly to the youth programming. Our goal is to teach youth life skills through numerous "hands on" projects and levels of socialization. The Lawrence County 4-H aims to provide a high quality of programming and support for both our youth and our volunteer leaders. Thank you again to all of the people that supported the Lawrence County 4-H.
