COVID restrictions prevented the Fort Oglethorpe Kiwanis Club from holding its Distinguished Service Awards fundraising luncheon and auction. Judy O'Neal, owner of UCTV-265, donated airtime so the club could hold the auction live on "Night Talk." The club hoped to raise $2,000 but exceeded that by raising $3,900.
Thank you to Judy O'Neal and UCTV-265 for hosting the auction, to everyone who called in and bid and to these businesses for their generous donations: AMS Medical Supply & CBD, Animal Medical Center, Antiques by the Fountain, Bank of LaFayette, Battlefield Golf Course, Battleview Bed & Breakfast, Chickamauga Florist, Cloud Springs Deli, Council Fire Golf Club, Elder's Ace Hardware, Estate Liquidators & More, Farm to Fork, Food City, Gateway Business Center, Georgia Northwest Technical College, Ivy Cottage Restaurant, LaFayette Golf Club, Lisa's Gold & Diamonds, Masonry Specialists, McLemore Golf Club, Moon Pie Store, North River Graphics Printing, Our House Studios, Ringgold Downtown Partners, Rock Spring Wash & Lube, Smokey Boys BBQ, Team King Realtors, Top of Georgia, UCTV-265 and Walnut Hill Farm.
