Boys and Girls Club Dinner Auction raises money for club maintenance

NAPPANEE — The Boys and Girls 10th Annual Dinner Auction was held last Saturday.
With around 290 guests in attendance and dinner provided by Nelson's Catering, program director James Kramer stated that the night went well.
This year's theme was "Bid on a Dream." Future jobs and dreams of the children who attend the club were displayed as center pieces on the tables to remind bidders why they were there.
"Last year (set) a record for us and this year went even better," he explained of the donations received.
Only three percent of the money earned at the Boys and Girls Club of Nappanee comes from annual fees. Rather, much of it comes from donations, the dinner auction, golf outing and other fundraising efforts.
"It's a great tell of how giving this community can be," he stated.
