Update on our Spring 21-22 Campaign Radio Auction: Grand Total - $47,300
With Covid-19 still keeping everyone on edge, we decided to hold the auction as we did in the fall. We did allow people to come inside to a roped off area to view the items. Meals were still carry-out only. The auction was shown on Facebook live, aired on our local radio station and bids were taken by phone. Our partner agencies, churches, businesses, organizations and individuals donated items to be auctioned, provided carry-out lunches daily for purchase and became sponsors for this event. We held two (2-week) auctions during the campaign year. A fall auction in October 2021 and a spring auction in March 2022. I am excited to report that our Spring 22 auction raised $47,300 which will be used to supplement funding for our 15 local partner agencies and several Community Impact projects. It takes great effort to coordinate the auction, but our entire community supports our efforts, and we have a lot of fun and fellowship while raising funds for those in need. We are looking forward to our 22-23 auction and plan to open the doors to allow everyone inside to bid, eat, or just have a little fun with us.
Our Board has decided to return to the one Annual 3-week auction in the fall. Covid allowed us to try a different format which gave us an extra week, but the Board, Volunteers and Community enjoy the Fall Auction most. Looking forward to seeing you and hearing your bids announced for some great items.
