MOUNT VERNON — Plans are under way by the organizers of Ohio Junior Miss Inc. for the 25th annual Ohio Junior Miss Radio Auction. The event will be held Saturday, Jan. 29, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a live broadcast by 13 WMVO.
Todd Hawkins, radio auction chairman of Ohio Junior Miss Inc., said the event is made possible again this year through the generous donation of air time by 13WMVO, and the listing of items donated by the Mount Vernon News.
The past 23 years the Ohio Junior Miss Radio Auction has raised over $231,000 for scholarships. A large group of volunteers are out soliciting for items to be sold at the auction from more than 250 businesses and individuals throughout the state.
All items received for the auction will be listed on special pages in the Mount Vernon News prior to Jan. 29. Auction items are listed here.
A dollar value will be placed on each item that will be in numeric order.
According to Hawkins, the public will call 399-5633, the OJM Radio Auction number, that day and place bids on the items. He emphasized that everything is being donated for the auction, and that all monies will be used for college scholarships for the Ohio Junior Miss Scholarship Program.
Anyone interested in donating an item should call Hawkins at 740-399-5526 or e-mail him at THawkins@firstknox.com.
