Lights of Life Gala Seeks Silent Auction Items

Feb. 9, 2023- Plans for the Hopkins County Health Care Foundation’s 17th Annual Lights of Life Gala are well underway. The caterer and band have been secured for this April 22, 2023 event to be held at the Hopkins County Civic Center. Now, the silent auction committee is seeking gifts of items to be auctioned off as part of the festivities. Items will be available for both in person as well as remote bidders to compete for the winning bid.

Approximately 120 items are sought. Last year’s silent auction brought in over $30,000, and this year committee members are hoping for the same amount or more.

Funds raised through the silent auction are combined with other proceeds from the event to purchase much-needed equipment and programs which will benefit Hopkins County citizens.

Last year’s auction items included unique photography, gift certificates, grills, sports memorabilia, grass fed beef, home décor, experiences, themed baskets, and even edible delights. This year’s offerings will be equally diverse and enticing.
