Charity auction nets $12,000

A major fundraiser has paid off for non-profit community agencies.

The United Way’s spring online auction generated $12,213.

“There were the most bidders ever and a lot of first-time bidders to the auction,” said Linda Yule, executive director. “We are really pleased with the results. We owe a big thank you to our sponsors, donors and bidders for these great results.”

The funds will go towards activities provided by a number of local services agencies.
