The Children's Auction Pre-Bidding begins on Black Friday, Nov. 24!

Can’t Wait for The Children’s Auction to Begin? Bid Early on Dozens of High Value Items Starting November 24! Knock Out Your Black Friday Shopping and Help Local Kids in Need

Last year this was such a hit that we are continuing the Black Friday, November 24 Pre-Bidding, all online Auction bidders can bid early on items. The best part is anyone can also put a maximum bid on any items and they will close during the week of the Auction!

The Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction (GLRCA), running this year from Tues., Dec. 5 through Fri., Dec. 8, 9 AM – 7 PM at the Belknap Marketplace, is thrilled to announce that starting at 8 AM on Black Friday, November 24 any registered Auction bidder can go online and bid early on fantastic, high-value items and continue bidding through out the Auction week.

Want to donate a special item valued at $300 or more and be included in the Black Friday early bidding? Drop it off before November 15 and it will be included in our new, online pre-bidding!

Beginning on Black Friday, Nov. 24, bidding in the Greater Lakes Region Children's Auction will be open on items valued at $300 or more.

New this year, everyone can place MAX BIDS on all items during the entire Auction. Your bid will automatically go up in increments to keep you in the lead up to your MAX limit. We'll let you know if someone outbids you and you can decide if you want to increase your MAX limit.

New items are being added every day! Early Auction bidding is open to everyone – all you need is an online account. Not yet a registered GLRCA bidder? Opening an online account, is secure, quick and easy. Just go online to get started. Don’t miss out on these once-in-a-lifetime high value items! The GLRCA is still looking for items of any value for this year’s Auction. 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, experiences, tickets to events, tools, toys, sporting goods and household items all bring the highest bids.
