In hopes of reaching its fall campaign goal, United Way of Lamar County is holding an online, silent auction throughout this week at charityauction.bid/UnitedWayLamarCounty.
Bidding starts on Wednesday, Sept. 15 at 12 a.m. and ends on Thursday, Sept. 16 at 9 p.m. Over 70 items have been donated from local businesses and individuals to help the United Way reach its annual campaign goal.
“We are so grateful to everyone who has donated items to this year’s online auction,” said UWLC Executive Director Jenny Wilson. “We have really incredible items to bid on including Dallas Cowboy and Texas Rangers tickets, steak dinners, a crawfish boil, event rental of the Vault, a two-night stay at a historic downtown loft, hand painted and custom items, gift certificates from local restaurants, baskets from local retailers, golf packages, and much, much more!”
“I especially want to thank the Auction Committee that solicited all these donations including Brenda Wells, Melissa Gordon, Monica Clement and Lindsey Severson,” Wilson added. “We could not have put this together without their help, and now we need everyone to register on the site and place their bids this Wednesday and Thursday!”
