  • Start collecting your spare change and make plans to attend the Quarter Mania Silent Auction held April 6 at the Country Club Hotel and Spa. The first event of it's kind at Lake of the Ozarks, Quarter Mania is a fundraiser for the Heart of the Ozarks Professional & Business Women. Doors open at 1 p.m. and the auction starts at 2 p.m.
    Tickets are $15 in advance ($20 at the door) and includes an appetizer buffet and a paddle for access to the quarter auction. More than 100 items are expected to be up for grabs from golf packages to gift baskets and certificates to Lake area businesses. A cash bar will be provided.
    To place a bid, participants will drop a quarter in a bucket for a chance to win the item. Upgrade and purchase a Rockstar Paddle for $50 and get unlimited bidding on items with no need to drop a quarter in the bucket. Only 50 Rockstar Paddles will be sold.
    For more information, to purchase tickets, or to donate items for the auction, contact Amanda at 660-342-4713 or email faganaj@yahoo.com.
    The Heart of the Ozarks Professional & Business Women raises money to award scholarships to local students and Lake area charities.
     
    How it works
    Each auction item has been given a “quarter value.” When an item is up for auction they will announce how many quarters you need to bid on the item. Toss the allotted amount of quarters into the bucket on table and hold up your Bid Paddle (white paddle). A number will be drawn and if your paddle is up, you win the item. If your number is drawn and you did not bid (put quarters in) then another number will be drawn until there is a winner.
    If you purchase a Red Rockstar Paddle you are eligible for all bids, no quarters are necessary. You must hold up your Red Rockstar Paddle to play.
    Must purchase a $15 entry ticket ($20 at door) this includes an appetizer buffet and a white bid paddle. For an additional $50 a Red Rockstar Paddle can be purchased.
    Proceeds benefit PBW’s scholarship program and charitable donations to lake-area non profits.
