The Hopkinsville Rotary Club's Annual Rotary Auction is the most successful publicly-funded student loan program in the world. It is also the largest single Rotary Club fundraising project in all of Rotary International, which includes over 32,000 clubs in 200 nations worldwide. Yes, we are proud of and excited about this great community service project!

It started with a goat, and it grew! 67 years ago, the Hopkinsville Rotary Club held its first live radio auction. One of the items, a goat, was resold numerous times and became a celebrity! The proceeds of that effort were $3,558.38, and after just two auctions, the Student Loan Program helped 16 students from Christian County.
