We’re super excited that our first charity spotlight is on the Children’s Auction. It’s an insanely cool way to help the children here locally in our area.
This volunteer run auction helps provide other local charities in the area with funds to provide aide and services to the children of the Lakes Region.
In its first year, the Auction made $2100. Now with the help of all of the Lakes Region, those numbers are being blown out of the water! Last year it was OVER $500,000!! Over the past 33 years, over $4 million dollars has been raised for local charities.
The Children’s Auction is held every year in Dec but throughout the year people and businesses all over the Lakes Region come together to help benefit the Children’s Auction. One of the biggest is the Pub Mania event hosted at Patrick’s pub each year. People from all over the Lakes Region can donate items that go up for auction.
How can you help? Get involved in the events, donate items to the auction, bid on items or volunteer your time.
To learn more about the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction, come on down to our Summer Kick Off Ladies Night Out Networking Event at Patrick’s Pub in Gilford. A representative from the Auction will be there to answer any questions and help you learn more about the Auction!
