Panhandle Quarter Auctions for Charity
May 14, 2013 Doors open at 6:00 and auction starts at 7:00
Leon County Service Center, 1000 West Tharpe Street, Tallahassee, FL 32303
Every second Tuesday of the month, we meet to raise money for a different charity!
It's a cross between an auction, a networking event, a charity fundraiser, and a home party! Local direct sales vendors will be auctioning off new items for only 1-4 quarters per bid! You can win items retailing up to $100 for very little! It's a fun night so be prepared to get addicted; you'll want to come every month.
How It Works:
- Each item up for bid will be displayed for all guests to see.
- There will be a brief description, retail value and how many quarters
you will need to bid. Guests that want to play will give their bid
(quarters) and hold up their numbered paddle.
- When all bids are collected, the auctioneer will draw a numbered chip
from the container. If the number on your paddle matches the number on the chip drawn, you've won that item! If a matching numbered paddle is not held up, the auctioneer will draw again, until we have a winner.
- Once we have a winner all chips will be placed back in the container and go to the next item to be auctioned.
There will also be 50-50 raffles and door prizes at these events.
Complimentary refreshments to all vendors and their guests.
All proceeds from the Quarter Auction events will be donated to a pre-chosen local charity. This month's charity is the Tallahassee Chapter of the National Federation of the Blind.
Come join us for a fun filled night while raising money for a great organization!
