ROTARY CLUB OF SARNIA 33rd ANNUAL ROTARY AUCTION A HUGE SUCCESS
Sarnia, ON / 25 November 2016 – The 33rd annual Rotary auction, which was held on Sunday November 20 was a huge success. Over $51,000 was raised for Rotary projects. The funds will be used to support local and international objectives of the Rotary Club of Sarnia.
Our donors were very generous again this year. All of the auction items are donated by local merchants or “friends of Rotary”. Without these donors the auction would not be possible. “We want to thank everyone who helped us to put on this auction in 2016, your help is greatly appreciated” said auction co-chair Jenny Greensmith (with Mike Hurry).
This auction is the largest single event run by the Rotary Club of Sarnia. Over 500 items were sold including many unique items and experiences.
A big thank you as well to all of our volunteers both inside and outside of Rotary. On the day of the event there were on-air auctioneers, runners, data entry help and of course the people who answer the phone such as off-duty Sarnia firefighters. Much of the bidding is now online which means a lot of work goes into setting up the website, getting accurate descriptions and photos of the items. Thanks to Bill Hoad and Jamie Pole for leading this effort.
The local media was a great help in spreading the word to potential bidders. We talked to various news providers both on-air, online, and in print. CogecoTV was again our host and did a great job getting us “Live” on Sunday.
The auction will be back for 2017. Stay tuned but most of all “THANK YOU SARNIA LAMBTON”
