Optimist-Kiwanis Clubs Ready To Begin Radio Auction | WPKY 103.3 FM

The Princeton Optimist Club and Kiwanis clubs are set up and ready to go as the radio auction kicks off Monday afternoon to raise funds to give back to the youth in Caldwell and Lyon counties.

Optimist Club President George Kilgore says the “New in 22” theme is bringing lots of changes, including a record-breaking fundraising goal of $22,000. Every dollar raised will go directly to the youth in our community.

Kilgore says there will be hundreds of items to be auctioned off and you can stop by and see in person what is available.
