Rotary Club of Crystal Lake Dawnbreakers is proud to host the 28th Annual Western Auction on Saturday March 4, 2017 at the Holiday Inn in Crystal Lake. Over the course of 28 years, the Dawnbreakers have donated over $1.5 million to charity, both locally and globally through the Rotary International initiatives, from money raised at the auction.
This year, the auction will include dinner, silent and live auctions, a "Show Me the Money" $10,000 cash raffle, 50/50 cash raffles, and a mechanical bull.
Those interested in attending can view auction items, purchase tickets, and register for night of bidding on the Auction Website at Bidding for Good. Updates are made daily, so continue to check the site!
Please join us for a night of fun that truly lives up to the Rotary motto of "Service Above Self!"
These awards all called the ‘Joe Helbling Vocational Scholarships’, named in memory of Dr. Joseph P. Helbling, Jr. – a PHD in Occupational Education Administration, past Dean of Occupational Studies at MCC, and beloved Rotary ‘Dawnbreaker’ prior to his passing back in 2002 at the young age of 54. These scholarships are funded by the efforts and dedication of our membership, guests and sponsors of our club’s annual ‘western’ auction heading into its 27th year held each March at the Holiday Inn in Crystal Lake, IL.
