Night for Sight dinner and auction to benefit Lions VIP tournament

Published 7:06 am Wednesday, March 20, 2019

A Night for Sight dinner and auction to raise funds for the blind and visually impaired will be held at Duck Woods Country Club in Southern Shores on March 23. Tickets for the fundraising dinner are $35 per person.

Proceeds from the benefit will fund the 36th Annual NC Lions Visually Impaired Persons Fishing Tournament. The tournament provides a three-day event for educational, recreational and personal growth opportunities to serve North Carolina’s visually impaired persons and provide a venue for a national fishing tournament.

Beginning at 5:30 p.m., guests will browse the area displaying three sections of silent auction items. Each of these areas will close at staggered times to allow bidders to watch over items before moving to the next silent auction area. A sit-down dinner will be served at 7 p.m. A live auction will begin following the dinner.
