3rd Annual Two-Bit Auction a Success

Date Posted: 2014-mar-01

Our Third Annual Two-Bit Auction was held on Thursday, February 27th at the Columbus Centre. The event was a great success with the energy and laughter in the room being indicators of the fun people were having. Thanks to our presenting sponsor Canadian Tire, and the support of many local businesses and individuals, the sell out crowd of 225 people had some fantastic prize baskets to bid on. Thanks to all of our sponsors, donors and volunteers who helped make our 3rd Annual Two-Bit Auction a success. Start saving those quarters for our 4th Annual Two-Bit Auction to be held in February of 2015.
