Help Out By Attending An Auction:
Attending an auction is an overall wise investment. You can purchase an expensive item for less money than by going the conventional route. Plus, many auctions are put together to benefit a good cause. Foundations and non-profit organizations benefit from auctions by achieving goals of funding programs and providing assistance to those in need.
At silent auction charitable events, guests can make monetary bids on particular items and the person who makes the highest bit earns the prize. At a typical charity auction, guests receive a delicious meal and drinks to sip while enjoying the night’s festivities. Prized items can range from household items to reservations at high-end restaurants and hotels to vehicles and inclusive-style resort packages.
Purchasing any item at an auction is less expensive than buying it outright at a retailer or online. Also, let’s not forget that you’re helping a worthy cause and you only spend as much as you want to.
One auction in particular that’s dear to us and our community is the second annual Christmas Gala, held on December 6, 2013 at the Woodward Convention Center. This auction is being put on by the Western Plains Youth & Family Services Shelter. The auction’s mission is to continue to have the funds in order to care for the children benefiting from the center’s services.
Your generosity and donations are much appreciated and rewarded with spectacular prizes, entertainment and dining. The “Paper Angels” themed auction begins with a silent auction followed by a live auction thereafter. Your donations help the center continue their community outreach programs which assist with funding and providing critical services to at-risk and in-need families throughout our community.
