The 100 Mile Lions Club set multiple records at this year’s annual Dinner & Auction on Nov. 5.

We had a record 140 people attend this year,” says club president Kim Taylor.

Last year, we had 130 people. We actually had to turn people away both years. We sold out of tickets.”

The auction, which has been going on for 30 years, was especially successful.

We also managed to raise $13,000. This was another record.”

Members and guests had fun during the evening, she adds.

We managed to auction off a batch of cinnamon buns for $110 and eight loaves of bread for $18.”

All the funds raised by the Lions go to local needs and charities, including donations towards the soccer field, the South Cariboo Health Foundation, Camp Winfield and Easter Seals.

I would like to thank all who attended – the members, guests, and especially the volunteers.”
