‘Call to Auction’ …last day to give, help, shop

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – During the coronavirus outbreak, experts in a variety of fields have reported a increase in domestic violence ad related social problems.
Much of the problem falls o the backs of social service agencies already strapped for resources.
The community has a chance to help one of those starting next week. And as it so happens, it’s a perfect opportunity to do some shopping for special gifts.
The Nest-Center for Women, Children & Families is holding its first-ever virtual silent auction and raffle completely online. Fittingly, it’s called The Nest’s Call to Auction.
“Covid-19 has presented sudden challenges for the families and individuals we serve, as well as our own organization. Overcoming these setbacks has required adaptability, ingenuity, and community support,” said Katie Beard, special events coordinator for the agency.
The silent auction boasts more than 50 fabulous packages, including:
• Tickets for the 2021 or 2022 NCAA Final Four & Championship Games
• Admission to the 2021 or 2022 Golf Tournament in Augusta
• Signed Items by Coach John Calipari

In addition, the Nest is raffling two exclusive 7-night stays in Sedona, Arizona and Key West, Florida. Raffle tickets are $50 each, and every ticket purchased enters to win either trip. Only 500 raffle tickets will be sold, and tickets are on sale now.
