ROCKLAND — Support local students by trekking on over to Trekkers’ Annual Community Auction Fundraiser. Once again, the auction will take place at the Rockland Elks Club. Attendees will find a variety of pies baked by families and volunteers. All goods, services, and gift certificates have been donated by local businesses, craftspeople, and supporters from across the community. Everyone is welcome – its free to view.
Now in its eleventh year, this event helps students fundraise towards their program dues and also supports Trekkers programming.
The auction takes place Sunday, Oct. 16, at Rockland Elks Club - 210 Rankin St, Rockland.
2 - 4 p.m. Silent Auction and a “Buy Now” Sale
4 -5 p.m. Live Auction (hosted by Bruce Gamage of Gamage Antiques)
Also, there will be unique travel experiences, like a South African Safari and the big-ticket item, thanks to Fisher Engineering, the Fisher® EZ-V Plow, which comes with all the necessary components to interface your vehicle.
This year, bidders can submit an absentee bidding form for items, so Trekkers can bid on your behalf. The form and catalog will both be available closer to the event – all info and updates will be posted on the Facebook Event page here. If your business would like to donate an item, please contact Jamie Camber at email@example.com.
