Organizers of the Rotary Club of Sarnia’s online auction, which went live today (November 12) and continues through November 17, hope to raise thousands for club projects that will benefit the entire community.
Those wishing to bid on various items—total value of which exceeds $70,000—can go directly to www.sarniarotaryauction.com.
Bidders will get the chance to purchase hundreds of items from generous donors across the Sarnia-Lambton region. After many years on local tv this year the auction will be 100% online for the first time. It is expected that there will be over 50 blocks and 500 items offered for sale. This is the largest annual fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Sarnia and helps the club make many community donations each year to worthy projects.
Auction items make a great Christmas gift. An online credit card purchase option will also be available this year making purchases easy and convenient. Auction organizers pointed out that with our auction what you bid is what you pay!! There are no bidders premium or HST tax added to your cost.
The item may be picked up at the Rotary office on 1210 Michigan road (beside Pathways) on November 18 and 19.
“We are so very grateful for the support of our community in donating items for the auction “– said Rotarian Jenny Greensmith who is one of the auction organizers.
Auction items this year include gift baskets, local services, gift certificates for your favorite places, sports tickets, electronic gadgets, weekend getaways, and other unique hand-crafted gifts.
Rotary Club of Sarnia uses proceeds raised by the Rotary auction to benefit local projects, including the Club’s recently completed $1 million dollar pledge to Bluewater Health, Cabins at Camp Attawandaron, Standing Oaks recent expansion, and various commitments to Pathways Health Centre for Children.
