ST. CHARLES—How would you like a day on the golf course with a chance to win a 2011 Harley Davidson with a hole-in-one? What about a week at a luxurious island home? How about a fun-filled evening for a good cause?

A week’s stay at a beautiful five-bedroom Captiva Island home is one of the fabulous auction items available for bid. Take a sneak peek by going to www.lazarushouseonline.com.

“We are excited to partner with the Kiwanis on this spring event,” said Lazarus House Executive Director Liz Eakins. “They have been such a great partner to us, especially in meeting the needs of children at our shelter, and we are looking forward to raising funds with them. They are helping us tremendously by taking on a great deal of the work and risk of this event while sharing profits with us.”
