Humane Society auction coming soon

The Martin County Humane Society will hold its fourth annual dinner and auction Saturday, April 12, at Loogootee High School’s cafeteria. The dinner will consist of hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, coleslaw, chips, drinks and dessert for just $5 per person and will be serving from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The live auction will begin at 7 p.m. but all items up for auction will be displayed throughout the dinner for viewing. Noel Harty will serve as auctioneer again this year.

Humane Society President Josh Hughett said, “This annual event provides the society with a few months of operation costs, such as dog food, vet care, and shelter expenses. We rely on it to be a success every year to keep helping as many dogs and cats as we can.”

Some items included in this year’s auction are four tickets to Walt Disney World in Orlando, tickets to Holiday World, Kings Island, Kentucky Kingdom & Hurricane Bay, Six Flags, Indiana Beach, Coney Island Sunlite Pool and Classic Rides in Cincinnati, Mesker Park Zoo, Columbus Zoo & Aquarium, Big Splash Water Park in French Lick, and Indianapolis Zoo. Also, in sports are tickets to games with the following teams: Indiana State University Men’s Basketball, Evansville Purple Aces Men’s Basketball, Evansville Otters, Indianapolis Indians, Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals, Indiana Ice and the Cincinnati Reds.

There are autographed photos or items from Duck Dynasty cast, Indiana University Volleyball Coach Dunbar, Purdue University Men’s Basketball Coach Matt Painter, Purdue University Football Coach Darrell Hazell, Indiana Fever, Indiana Pacers, Indianapolis Colts, and the Chicago Bears, along with an autographed Mutt Comic from creator Patrick McDonnell.

The auction will include several other items from local businesses including gift certificates, paintings, and gift baskets. More than 100 items will be up for auction. The new t-shirts, with the 2014 design, will be available for purchase also for $12 each.
