By on March 15, 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, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Tickets for the fundraising event, which sold out last year, are just $35 per person, which includes a sit-down dinner.

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

Guests will browse the three sectioned area displaying silent auction items while enjoying a night of exciting and creative enjoyment. Each of these areas will close at staggered times to allow bidders to watch over coveted items before moving to the next silent auction area.

Dinner will be served at 7 p.m. A live auction will follow the conclusion of dinner.

“The local Dare County community and Lions from across the state are donating items that are sure to please everyone and hopefully big bargains can be expected,” said VIP Board President Ron Curtis. “The real winners of this auction will be the visually impaired that we Lions serve. Won’t you please help us make this a big success?”

A few of the items collected include autographed sporting memorabilia from UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke, NC State, and the Carolina Hurricanes, a large handmade vase by renowned Seagrove potter Phil Morgan, painting by Thomas Kincaid, accommodations in the Outer Banks and Ashevlle, national and international trips, golfing packages, many gift certificates, off shore fishing, an African Safari, and much more.

Anyone interested in donating items, sponsoring a table, or buying tickets should contact Gwen White, executive director of the VIP Tournament program, at 252-441-4966 or 252-202-2329 or
