67th Annual Rotary Auction @ Memorial Building
Apr 17 @ 5:00 pm – Apr 22 @ 11:00 pm

The Hopkinsville Rotary Club’s Annual Rotary Auction is the most successful publicly-funded student loan program in the world. It is also the largest single Rotary Club fundraising project in all of Rotary International, which includes over 32,000 clubs in 200 nations worldwide. Yes, we are proud of and excited about this great community service project!

It started with a goat, and it grew! 67 years ago, the Hopkinsville Rotary Club held its first live radio auction. One of the items, a goat, was resold numerous times and became a celebrity! The proceeds of that effort were $3,558.38, and after just two auctions, the Student Loan Program helped 16 students from Christian County.

In the past 67 years, the auction and student loan program has grown dramatically. The fund has provided over $10.6 million to area students to further their post high school education. Over 10,287 students have benefited from this work. In 2013 alone, $288,940.00 was loaned out to 162 students.

Our goal for this year is $355,000.00, and your contribution will help us to reach that goal and provide deserving students with the assistance they need in order to further their education.
