2nd Annual Lakes Area Auction ~ Thursday, August 13th

Tue, 06/23/2015 - 18:36 -- Anna

Mark your calendars and plan to join us at our 2nd Annual Lakes Area Auction benefitting Lakes Crisis & Resource Center!  All auction proceeds will be used to ensure that programs and services are available to those in our community who need us.

Like last year, Bachmann Auctioneers will be providing their expertise while also entertaining the crowd (as those who attended last year can confirm!)  In addition to the quality items available for bidding, we will also be featuring the “Unique Boutique” where you’ll find high quality name brand clothing and accessories.

Wondering how you can help us make this an even more successful event than last year? 

We are currently seeking donations of the following new or gently used items:

· Furniture            · Tableware          · Home Décor

· Antiques             · Lawn Mowers     · Trucks

· Boats                   · Tools                   · Cars

· New electronics          · Outdoor furnishings 

Donations are tax deductible and can be brought to the Crisis Center during regular business hours 8:30 am – 4:30 pm on   weekdays.  Also, we have four additional weekend drop off dates and times scheduled this summer from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm on July 11 & 12 and August 1 & 2.

This will be an excellent opportunity to find affordable furnishings for a college student or home owner looking to outfit their apartment or cabin while supporting the Lakes Crisis & Resource Center and the clients it serves. During the auction the winners of the raffle for which we are currently selling tickets will be drawn.  Prizes include $2000 cash, a Green Egg Grill, and 50 pounds of beef.

If you are an avid auction attendee, are looking for a good deal on home furnishings or new toys, are  interested in a fun new way to support LCRC, OR are looking for an entertaining family night — the Kent Freeman Arena is the place to be on Thursday,  August 13th!   Plan to come early and have your evening meal with us!  Brats and hot dogs will be available for dinner as well as coleslaw, chips and bars for dessert. 

If you are unable to contribute to the auction or attend the event but would like to support us, please call 218-847-8572 and ask for Jan or Anna.
