Approximately $54,679 was raised during the 47th annual Cadiz Rotary Auction on the first day, with $31,500 of that raised during the Monday morning W. J. Hopson Kickoff Breakfast.

“We weren’t expecting anywhere near that,” said Rotary Auction Chairman Penny Jones. “We are on a mountain right now.”

Jones said one of the items that put them “over the top” was one of three original goose calls that are were up for bid that were made by Knight and Hale Game Calls, which was purchased for $25,000. They raised $14,490 at Monday night’s auction, $450 at the Country Store and $8,152 with the raffles, she added.

Other items sold at the Kickoff Breakfast included a 135-year-old quilt, a country ham and a special cake made in the shape of Kentucky.

At the Kickoff Breakfast, held every year at the Lake Barkley State Resort Park Convention Center, Trigg County High School Senior Class President X’Zashea Mayes said the world would be a better place if everyone asked the question, “What would a Rotarian do?”
