Starting on May 11 at 6 p.m. and ending late on May 13, volunteers will be auctioning off several unique items on the radio for patrons to purchase. The location of the sales will take place each night in the basement of Wilson Muir Bank’s main branch, off of South Main Street in Leitchfield.
All proceeds collected from the three-night event will be used to issue loans and scholarships to students in the county who are wanting to further their education.
The way the auction works is that people that call in at 270-259-4001 or visit the auction live in the basement of WMB. Visitors to the bank will get a little bit of an advantage to others, because they will get to see the items firsthand before bidding on them.
This is the Rotary Club’s big fundraiser for the year. It brings members in the community together, along with businesses and officials, to help contribute to a good cause.
Some of the goods and services being sold next week include a ‘Golden Ticket’ (free admission to school sporting events involving Grayson County students), University of Kentucky basketball tickets, exam certificates for first-time patients visiting Eriksen Chiropractic, $50 worth of fresh-cut flowers from For Myself Florist, laser-etched artwork of the Grayson County courthouse, portrait packages from Picture This Photography, bean bags and much more.

Rotary Club Secretary Jonathan Decker summarized what people will experience when they participate in the radio auction.
“For many years now, the Grayson County Rotary Club has held a live radio auction on our local radio station that has featured goods and services of local businesses,” Decker explained, “coming center stage for great deals, great opportunities, and an occasional friendly bidding war or two…all for a good cause.”
