Proceeds from the sale of “40 Years for the Kids” will benefit the Children’s Auction, Order Now!

LACONIA— The Janice Beetle Books team of the 2021 Challenge is developing a book about the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction to celebrate its 40th anniversary this year. Proceeds from sales of the book will benefit the 2021 Auction.

You can order a copy of “40 Years for the Kids,” a paperback that sells for $25, at Books will be delivered later this fall.

The Children’s Auction was the brainchild of Warren Bailey, a DJ for WLNH back forty years ago, when Bailey hosted the first live event in downtown Laconia.

Today, four decades later, the auction has hundreds of volunteers, dozens of corporate sponsors, over forty Community Challenge teams, and countless committed community members who donate and bid on Auction items. Together, these people helped the organization raise the over seven million dollars it has distributed to over eighty nonprofits that serve local children and their families.

In “40 Years for the Kids” you'll read stories of some of the auction’s many volunteers and the nonprofits it serves. Know there are so many more!

Order your copy today! What a great Christmas gift it would be!
