A Tradition of Service Above Self: 70th Hopkinsville Rotary Auction

Since 1950, the Hopkinsville Rotary Auction (and its generous community donors) has raised over $11 million to donate to the Hopkinsville Community College Rotary Scholars Program, giving local high school graduates the opportunity to attend HCC tuition-free.

Scheduled for Sept. 14-19, 2020 at the War Memorial Building (1202 S. Virginia Street) in downtown Hopkinsville, this year’s Rotary Auction will be ONLY offer bids by phone. There will be no in-person options at the facility, including the cancellation of the diner and sweet shop. Supporters can listen on WHOP or watch the live stream on www.HopkinsvilleRotary.com.

The Auction also helps support the Rotary loan program and other youth and education-based efforts in the community. The financial support of our donors not only makes a significant difference in the lives of Christian County students, but it also works to improve the overall quality of the available workforce.
