(Cushing) – The Cushing Rotary Club will be celebrating a milestone on Sunday. The annual Rotary Radio Auction takes place this Sunday from 1:00 to 6:00 PM, just as it has every October for the past 25 years.
Don Amon is one of the “air personalities” who will go live Sunday with this year’s event. He is one of several Rotarians needed to pull off the annual fundraiser, which raises money for several causes supported by the Cushing Rotary Club, including student exchange programs, youth sports, the annual teacher’s appreciation banquet and many more.
Rick Ahrberg is serving as this year’s chairperson. Ahrberg told KUSH this week he is slightly concerned about the weather forecast, but notes that the auction will go on whatever the weather. In the event of inclement weather, the event moves completely inside the Agri-Civic center just east of Faye O’Dell Field at Cushing High School. The event has always been held at the Agri-Civic Center under the cooperation of Cushing Public Schools.
Bargains on gift certificates and merchandise donated by area merchants and business people can be had. If you look closely at the sale bill, you’ll even find some “squirrel skinning” lessons.
More practical items are also available, including restaurant gift certificates, gift cards, oil changes, dinner theater tickets and more.
Bidders can place bids in person, and by telephone during the auction.
