Online auction up and running
Hundreds of great gift ideas are up for bid in support of community projects and activities, thanks to Rotary.
More than 300 items will be offered in this year’s version of the Vernon Rotary Annual Online Christmas Auction, which opens for bidding today at www.vernonrotaryauction.com.
It is the largest silent auction in the Vernon area and raised in excess of $25,000 last year. Proceeds from the auction go back into the community by helping Rotary sponsor community projects and events such as the Rotary Carol Festival and Spring Breakout for Seniors.
“It is the Rotary Club of Vernon’s major fundraiser,” said Todd Meir, auction coordinator.
“Without the generous contributions of local business and the participation of the general public such activities simply would not be possible.”
This year’s online auction opens at 9 a.m. today with the last bids accepted before 9 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 5.
The names of all donors and their donations will be announced in The Morning Star Rotary Showcase page and recognized in local media promotions and advertisements, as well as listed along with photos on the Annual Online Christmas Auction website.
