Sertoma Benefit Concert to feature silent auction

The ninth annual Sertoma Benefit Concert will be Saturday at Pewter Hall in Brownstown.

Doors for the event will open at 6 p.m., and tickets, which are $10, may still be purchased, event organizer Adam Nicholson said.

Tickets are available for purchase at Pewter Hall and Knotts and Tangles in Brownstown, The Bluebird Cafe in Vallonia and Brewskies Grub and Pub in Seymour. All tickets are presale only. No tickets will be sold at the door.

Nicholson said all proceeds that have been raised from the event have stayed in Jackson County.

The lineup of bands includes Lonesome Crow, followed by David and Whitney Campbell, These Fine Gentleman and The Jackson Way.

“This year, we are going to try a silent auction,” said Nicholson, who is helped by his wife, Kimberly Nicholson.

Items to be auctioned include a guitar signed by John Mellencamp, Sertoma cornhole boards, gift certificates to local restaurants and businesses, a diecast car signed by Tony Stewart, items signed by musician James Dupre and other items.

There also will be 50/50 drawings and a raffle for a Glock 42 handgun (.380 caliber).

Tables of eight may be reserved by calling Pewter Hall at 812-358-0919.

Throughout the years, the event has raised about $37,000 for the annual Sertoma Christmas Miracle, which provides gifts to needy children in the community.
