  • | 6:00pm - 9:00pm | Local Events, fundraiser, charity, bingo, quarter auction
    - We raise money for people and/or organizations in need. Be our next charity, while having fun.

    $5.00 includes 2 paddles.

    Doors open at 6 and we start at 7.

    Reaching out in the community to help people and organizations to raise money and awareness to those in need while having fun.

    Vendors: Thirty One, Sew Krafty, Buskins, Scrappy Details, Booze & Bags, Irene's Creations, Scentsy,
    Jamberry, Sassy Glass, & More!

    A quarter auction is part raffle, part auction, part fundraiser and also a direct sales party. It
    works a bit like bingo. When you arrive, you will be given a numbered paddle for a donation.
    This paddle will have a corresponding numbered chip which will be put into the drawing basket.
    A few minutes before the auction begins, you'll be able to purchase a second paddle for a
    donation, if you wish.
    The direct sales vendors will have items up for "auction". These items will be on display for
    about an hour after the doors open - you can see what will be up for auction and decide which
    items you're interested in.
    Once the auction begins, the announcer or one of the helpers will hold up the item that's up for
    bid and will announce whether the item is a "one quarter" or "two quarter" bid. If you're
    interested in bidding, you'll put one or two quarters (whatever was announced) for EACH
    paddle you intend to bid with. So if you have two paddles, want to bid with both to double your
    chances, and the item is a "one quarter" bid, you'll put .50 in the bucket and raise your
    paddle(s). If you have two paddles and decide to only bid with one, you only pay .25 BUT you
    MUST choose only one numbered paddle to bid with. A worker will be walking from table to
    table with a bucket to collect bids. The announcer will then draw a number to find a winner. If
    they draw your number and you had bid on the item, hooray! You just won an awesome item at
    a great price! If they draw your number and you did NOT bid, just call out "no bid!" and they'll
    continue to draw numbers until they find a winner.
    There may be various raffles and cash and carry items available through the evening - the
    announcer and workers will help explain how those work.
    Be sure to bring quarters, but if you forget or run out, there will be rolls of quarters available
    for purchase at the event.
    If it all sounds complicated, relax. Everything will be explained again once you get to the
    auction, and you'll catch on in no time and you'll love it!
