Fall is in the air and that means football, fair, and yes, the Benton County United Way ‘Good Neighbor’ Radio Auction. Three weeks in October starting Monday, Oct. 10.

“We look forward to having a three week auction again this season. There will be no spring auction in 2023,” says Director Jo Jones.

Listen to radio station WRJB-FM 95.9 and call in bids. Phone number for bidding is: 731-441-9748. Each day auction items are sold in 30-minute slots starting at 1 p.m. with the exception of any auction item valued above $75. These items will go long-term and be auctioned the last day of auction, Friday Oct. 28. Monday, Oct. 10 through Friday Oct. 28 are the 2022 dates. All donations, or auction items can be dropped off at the First United Methodist Church gymnasium in Camden as early as 8 a.m., as in years past.
Times will stay the same, Monday through Friday from 1 to 5 p.m. Agencies auctioning the first week are encouraged to bring their items on Thursday and Friday before the auction starts. Baked and homemade items may be brought the day they will be auctioned. There will be someone at the church building to accept items each day from 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. Everyone will have the same chance to bid on the phone, come into the gymnasium to bid and will be able to follow the auction via Facebook.
Meals will be sold each weekday of auction.
