Rotary Auction Is Saturday
Erma Deen Hoyle talking about Lincolnton Rotary Auction

Wayne Howard

The 26th annual Rotary Auction for Education will be held Saturday at Lincolnton High School, 803 N. Aspen St. in Lincolnton. There'll be plenty of items available for auction and some will be included in a silent auction as well. There'll also be a raffle that will offer a chance to win $10,000 for those attending the event and buying tickets.

The auction raises money for a loan fund that provides low-cost loans to Lincoln County students attending four-year colleges, community colleges and trade schools.  One of the advantages of the program is that the loans, while low-cost, are just that--and since the money is paid back, the fund can continue to provide assistance for students for years to come.  We talked with Erma Deen Hoyle, president of the Sunrise Rotary Club and of the Student Loan Fund Board about this year's auction: (VIDEO AT RIGHT)

In addition to the items donated for the auction, individual contributions to the effort have amounted to over $32,000 this year from Century Club members (those who contribute $100 or more).  In all, since it was created in 1994, the Student Loan Fund has provided loans in excess of $5 million to local students. 

You can preview items up for bid beginning at 4 PM. Dinner will be served at 5 PM, catered by Homeplace Restaurant. The auction begins at 6 PM.
