Women of Waynesville will host a Manly Man Auction at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, at Frog Level Brewing to raise funds for the Haywood County Schools Foundation.

Attendees will be able to bid on a variety of professional services, handyman services and date packages offered up by highly-qualified men in the community. Some of the bidding packages include lawn care services, firewood cutting services, a survival training camping trip for two, private ballroom dancing lessons, percussion lessons, an estate plan, and more.

WOW member Celeste Ybanez, also the chief operating officer of Frog Level Brewing, is campaigning to be crowned Queen at the school foundation’s annual Mardi Gras Ball on Feb. 23 — to win she has to raise the most funds for the foundation. All donations will benefit the foundation’s mission of providing classroom grants for teachers and scholarships for graduating seniors. In the last few years, WOW members have helped raise more than $25,000 for the schools foundation. WOW’s mission is to support the needs of women and children in Haywood County.

There is no cover charge for the Manly Man Auction event. If you have a service you would like to donate for the auction, call 828.550.9978.
