Supporting local children in need doesn’t take superheroes – it takes Super Bidders! The Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction has a wonderful benefit for bidders at this year’s Auction, scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 6 through Friday, Dec. 9, 9 AM – 7 PM at the Belknap Marketplace. Anyone looking to increase their chances of being a winning bidder — while increasing their support of the Auction — can become a Super Bidder. This year’s Super Bidder promotion is generously sponsored by Bonnette, Page & Stone.
For a donation of $100, Super Bidders will be able to look at the items on Auction boards as soon as they are available. Super Bidders can also:
· bid on items before they are open to the public
· submit bids with incremental increases up to the bidders’ pre-chosen maximum
· see how many bidders are also bidding on the item that they are interested in
· enjoy VIP check-out and pick-up service
· provide support to community nonprofits that serve local children & families in need.
Don’t miss out on your chance to become a Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction Super Bidder! Interested community members can find more information at
“Community members told us that they would love to spend less time monitoring the Auction for the items that they most want to bid on,” said Executive Director, Jennifer Kelley. “Becoming a Super Bidder gives people an opportunity to donate directly to the Auction to assist children in need while getting some great benefits.”
The GLRCA is looking for items for this year’s event. While many items have been received at this time, there is a need for thousands of items to raise enough money to meet the needs of the community.
Auction leaders will collect new, unused, unwrapped items right up to the week of the Auction. Gift cards, electronics, tools, toys, sporting goods and household items all bring the highest bids. Click here for a list of convenient donation drop-off sites throughout the Lakes Region. And on Black Friday weekend, Friday, November 25 from 11 AM -3 PM and Saturday, November 26 from 9 AM -1 PM, visit the collection site at Belknap Marketplace.
