Williams residents have a shot at winning $5,000 while supporting local youth at the same time through the Williams Rotary Club's 14th annual Western Harvest Auction.

The event is set for Nov. 2 at 5 p.m. at the Mountain Side Inn, 642 E. Route 66.

As part of the event, Rotary members are selling 1,000 raffle tickets at $20 each. The raffle will include one $5,000 prize, one $3,000 prize, one $1,000 prize and ten $100 prizes. Winners will be drawn at the auction, but do not need to be present to win.

"All the tickets are not taken up so you may have a greater than 1 in 1,000 chance, we'll see," said Brian Prager, one of the event's co-chairs.

The Harvest Auction will include a live auction, silent auction and a quarter auction.

For the quarter auction, each item is assigned a value, usually between one and eight quarters, and that is the amount required to bid on that item.

People can choose to purchase an all-in ticket, giving them the opportunity to bid on everything in all three auctions, for $75.

Auction items include a flatscreen TV, hotel and vacation packages and tickets to Bearizona.

Clay McCauslin of 92.9 KAFF Country also donated a guitar to the auction that is signed by Dierks Bentley, Randy Houser, The Band Perry, and David Nail.

In the past two years, Rotary has raised more than $40,000, which mostly goes to local scholarships.

"It's a big deal for them to get that money so they can get into the college here and be able to afford it," Prager said.

Besides the auctions, the event will also include dinner, music and a Halloween costume contest.

The Rotary Club is still accepting donations for auction items. Those interested in donating may contact Craig Fritsinger at (928) 635-5255.

Tickets to the event are $35 and are available at (928) 607-4661.
