Lion Brad Baker gave us a
suggested auction item list of over 160 items that could be
obtained for our auction. We have only 6 weeks left to call on
the merchants and businesses for the items we will auction
off. Our goal is to raise $9,000 from this auction. We must
have the items to have a successful TV Auction. Proceeds from
this project will be divided between Mid-South, Dyeannís House
and the three Jonesboro Lions Clubs sight funds.
