On October 2nd, waiting behind the doors of the American Legion Hall pieces of furniture wait to have your hands glide over their shining surfaces, provoking visions of a new space in your home. Sporting goods are on display to fill your head with dreams near the water or under the sun. Gift Cards sit neatly in their little envelopes with promises of a good time. Various other items so graciously donated by the businesses and supports of the local area wait patiently to catch your eye.

The auctioneer fires off prices with lightening speed, his gavel hits the podium and you sit with a smile on your face as you just won the item you had your heart set on from the moment you walked in the room.

Our Annual Auction is yet another tradition in Lowndes County. Local businesses receive an opportunity to partner with the Roast~N~Boast team’s efforts by donating various items to be auctioned off. The community is given the opportunity to come together for not just a fun filled evening, but to help make a difference to our charitable organization as they battle it out for the items of their choice. This event is free admission and open to the public. Refreshments will be available for purchase on site.
