Mary Markquart Special Events
Donate to an event auction item! Auction Donation
During each Club event we showcase local businesses through our silent & live auctions. The auctions are a wonderful way to raise funds to put right into the investment of our area youth! We understand that material things sometimes are difficult to come up with when generating a basket for an event. We want to do it for you! We will purchase items and put together a basket in the honor of you!

The annual Steak & Burger Dinner is a special evening where we get to showcase our members to the community.
