Tickets are on sale for the annual Coupeville Lions Club Scholarship Dinner and Auction.

Proceeds from the event go to scholarships for Coupeville High School seniors. This year’s event is 5-9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18, at the Elks Lodge in Oak Harbor.

Because the Coupeville Lions Scholarship Dinner and Auction is so generously supported by the community and is such a successful fundraiser, the club is able to award 20-26 scholarships each year, according to club members.

The scholarships usually range from $500 to $1,500 each, and the club awards approximately $24,000 in scholarships each year.

Scholarships are awarded to students planning to attend four-year universities as well as community colleges and trade schools. There are special scholarships for students studying education, the environment, the arts, business and medicine.

Tickets for the dinner and auction are $35 and include appetizers, a dinner served by Honor Society students, wine and beer and a chance to bid on some interesting auction items and raise money for scholarships.

To purchase tickets, call Lion Joe Walck at 360-678-4105 or stop in at bayleaf in Coupeville.
