The annual Executive Women International Chattanooga Chapter's Barnyard Auction will be Oct. 22 at The Chattanoogan. The event helps raise scholarship funds for recipients of the Jean Bradford Scholarship at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and Chattanooga State College.

Award recipients are single moms working toward a college degree.

“As a single mom who earned my degree, I am passionate about helping other single moms," said Lynda Childress, organization president and CEO of Luken Holdings Inc. "Our greatest source of help comes from funds raised at our spontaneously wild and fun evening at our annual Barnyard Auction."

EWI is the premier organization for networking and leadership development for today's business professionals and their firms, according to

Tickets for the event are $35 or $300 for a table of 10. Corporate sponsorships are available. More than $20,000 worth of donated goods and services will be auctioned, including overnight stays in other cities, electronics, golf packages, sports and spa packages.

"Knowing the money that goes to win a fabulous prize at the auction also supports the education of those in need in our own community is an amazing feeling,” says auction Chairperson Jody Hermann. For details, visit
