BPW 2 10 14MADISONVILLE, Ky. (10/14/19) — Woman’s Club of Madisonville is preparing for its 49th Annual “Tree”mendous Christmas Auction set for Thursday, Nov. 14 at the Ballard Convention Center.

The 100-year organization has funded numerous charities around the community to improve lives.

Tickets are on sale for $15 and they are available at The Gift Horse, Merle Norman and Mark of Distinction. The Silent auction begins when doors open 5:30 p.m. followed by a Live Auction at 6:30. Club members said funds raised go toward select charitable organizations in the community.

Hors d’oeuvre buffet will be available during the event.

During a club meeting this month, Karen Elliott donated a beautiful tray of cookies, which were auctioned by Hopkins Tourist and Convention Commission Director Trish Noel, which brought in $165 to officially kick off their endeavor.

Club members also collected old tennis shoes and delivered them to Nashville last week that will be recycled for playground equipment.

Woman’s Club of Madisonville community contributions through next year include Madisonville North Hopkins and Hopkins County Central high schools project graduations, Happy Feet, Impact Mentoring, Door of Hope, Breaking Bread, middle school Family Resource Centers, Humane Society and Baptist Health Bears for pediatric patients.


Local club auction chairwoman Donna Vaughan has been nominated for the state office of first vice president. The election will take place at the General Federation of Women’s Clubs Kentucky State Convention in March.
