The Magnolia Boys and Girls Club has scheduled their annual auction for Dec. 10 at their newly renovated facility. The auction will feature items donated by local businesses and will be broadcasted by the Magnolia School District’s student media team on the Magnolia Boys and Girls Club Facebook.
Bidders will call over the phone to place bids and the highest bidder will have a deadline to pay for the item. If the bidder does not make the deadline, the s e co n d - h i g h - est bidder will be given the opportunity to pay for the item. The items will be displayed in 30 minutes segments with large ticket items receiving more air time. All proceeds go into the general operations fund of the Magnolia Boys and Girls Club.
“Thank you to all of our local businesses that have donated items and sponsored a board,” said Executive Director Deneisa Jamerson.
Jamerson officially took over as Executive Director of the Magnolia Boys and Girls Club on Oct. 1 after former Executive Director David Smith’s retirement. Previously, Jamerson served as the El Dorado Boys and Girls Club’s Director of Operations.
Renovations to the Boys and Girls Club were completed the week prior to the Magnolia School District’s opening in August, with Jamerson attributing much of their support coming from the Magnolia Junior Charity League.

The Magnolia Boys and Girls Club has plans for more renovations in the future. These renovations include a new roof and vinyl siding for the old gymnasium as well as displaying a large metal lettered sign from an anonymous donor at the front entrance of the building.
“We have been blessed with some great community support,” stated Chris Ludwig, Director of Sports and Facilities.
