Swisher Men's Club game feed & auction promises excitement
It's very rewarding to be part of something that benefits people around you, which makes the Swisher Men's Club's annual game feed and auction Feb. 17 a most anticipated event.
The night's menu includes deer stir fry, turkey nuts, hog nuts, elk meatloaf, buffalo, rabbit, raccoon, pheasant, two kinds of turtle, goose, smoked turkey, mashed potatoes, corn and gravy. Tickets are $20 and only a few remain.
Afterward, at about 7 p.m., a live auction and raffle ensues. Auction items include several firearms, a weeklong trip to Canada, a smart TV and a Cedar Rapids Kernels suite among the 100 or so lots. A meal ticket is not needed to attend the auction.
The Swisher Men's Club supports an array of efforts, including scholarships, the local fire department, Iowa City hospice, veterans organizations, grocery donations at Christmas, memorials, etc. It's a fantastic organization.
I will be the auctioneer for the event, and I'm very excited. I'm just as amped about Feb. 15 when it's time to thaw and cut hog nuts. Let's get to it!
People can still donate to this event by calling me anytime at 319.981.3309. Thanks, Scott.
