TAVARES — The Lake County 4-H Program is hosting a benefit spaghetti dinner and Chinese auction on Saturday, Jan. 28, from 5 to 7 p.m. at The Villages Elementary School, located at 695 Rolling Acres Road, Lady Lake.
Admission to the benefit dinner and auction is $1, and $6 for an adult-sized meal and $4 for a children’s portion. A Chinese auction is a relatively new idea for fundraisers. It is really not an auction nor is there anything Chinese about it. Better defined as a raffle, participants purchase tickets of various amounts for different prizes. Bidders can win a particular prize by placing their tickets into a container for that certain prize and having their ticket drawn.
“This fundraiser will benefit the various activities of the Lake County 4-H Program, such as summer camps, achievement awards, leadership training, curriculum and participation in countywide, district, state and national events,” said Sarah T. Hensley with Lake County 4-H Youth Development.
