50th Annual Boys & Girls Club Car Raffle and Auction Means You Could Win This Car
Checking out this year's prize -- 2015 Chevy Cruz valued at over $21,000 -- are Mark Carter, Carter Chevrolet and Jack Weller, Boys & Girls Club.

For fifty years, the community has supported the Boys and Girls Club's Car Raffle and Auction which will be held Friday, June 19 at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds in Goforth Hall beginning at 6pm. You must have a ticket to attend the event.
Tickets are still available at the Club at 412 West Sumter Street or by calling the Club at 704 471-CLUB (2582). By selling all 400 of the tickets at $100 each, the Club is 80% toward its goal of raising $50,000 during the event to celebrate their 50th anniversary of the Car Raffle. The funds will support the Boys & Girls Club after school program and the Jack & Ruth Schweppe Summer Day Camp.
The silent auction will feature new items which include seasonal wreaths and sport passes for several Gardner Webb athletic teams. Faye Burton, auction committee chairperson explained that this being the 50th anniversary, "We wanted to offer special items in the auction so that we will raise an additional $10,000 so that we may help kids who need help the most."
Jason Falls, head of the County Commissioners will be looking for high bids during the live auction with unique items like an exclusive Advanced Artist Proof donated by Phillip Philbeck and Tracy Stillwell, Victorian Rose Studio in memory of Elwyn Stillwell, her Dad. Also in the live auction will be power garden equipment from Honda of Shelby, a wooden rocker from Laughlin Furniture, and a Bob Timberlake print from Cumminings Furniture.
Another tradition of the Club is to offer cakes donated by some of Cleveland County's best bakers. Last year, a German Chocolate Cake baked using Club supporter Lonnie Proctor's recipe brought over $500.
Contact any Board member of the Club or call the Club to purchase a chance to win.
