On Friday, Auction volunteers will come together to announce the total funds raised for children and families in the coming year. Don’t miss it!

This is the first year that Tanger Outlets has partnered with The Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction to host this vital fundraising event. Eric Proulx, General Manager of Tanger Outlets in Tilton, is excited to be a part of the Auction.

“At Tanger Outlets, supporting the communities where our shoppers and employees work and live is an important part of our company’s mission. This year, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to welcome The Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction as they celebrate their 40th Anniversary. We look forward to working in collaboration with the Auction to support their efforts and help our neighbors this holiday season.”

Jamie Sousa, GLRCA Board Chair, is thrilled that Tanger Outlets is providing a space to hold this year’s Auction. “We are all so excited to bring the Auction to such a vibrant venue, bustling with holiday cheer,” she states. “This is such a great opportunity to welcome the public back to see the Auction live and to celebrate our 40th year!”

Come experience the Auction in person! We’re planning fun guest appearances and surprises to mark our 40th year of helping children and families in the Lakes Region. There will be great in-person, socially distanced viewing on set, and even “curbside pickup” for winning bidders who prefer to remain in their cars. Tanger Outlets offers plenty of convenient parking. Join us and be part of the magic and excitement!
