Rotary Auction

Rotary Auction Viewing Party

Join Hopkinsville Brewing Company as they host their very first (socially-distant) viewing party in support of Hopkinsville Rotary Club’s 70th Annual Auction!

For the third year running, they have donated BEER NAMING RIGHTS to the auction and it’s going on the board Friday night! This particular item resulted in 2018’s Peachin’ to the Regulars Peach Pale Ale and 2019’s Jung at Heart California Common. Now it’s your turn to bid on the chance to design and name an HBC original beer.

Stop by to watch the auction, grab a bite to eat from G’s BBQ and have a beer with HBC – after all, $1 from each pint sold will be donated to the Hopkinsville Community College Rotary Scholars Program.

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. This year, in the spirit of #HoptownRotary‘s century of service, the 70th Hopkinsville Rotary Auction — chaired by Scott Cowan — carries a theme of “A Tradition of Service Above Self.”

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. Over the years, this annual auction has grown into the largest single fundraiser in all of Rotary International.
