Thank you to all who contributed items towards and attended our 2nd Annual Lakes Area Auction on August 13th. It was a smashing success! We are incredibly appreciative of the efforts of our hardworking committee as well. Many hours of prepping, planning, loading and lifting went into pulling this fundraising event together. Several local businesses provided generously with deep discounts and donations helping us keep expenses at a minimum. Thank you to Central Market, Daggett Trucking, Leighton Broadcasting, Swanson’s Repair & Rental Service, Newman Signs, Seven Sisters Spirits, Lakes Sport Shop, the bRew DL, United Community Bank of Perham, Alsager Ranch, and of course, Bachmann Auctioneers of Frazee.
Items sold ranged from antiques, china sets, furniture and appliances to tools, electronics, trips and cars! We have already begun planning the 3rd Annual Auction scheduled for Thursday, August 11th, 2016. In prior years, we began collecting auction item donations in June. For the 2016 event, we are accepting donations throughout the entire year during our regular business hours (Monday – Friday 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.). If you have a larger item to donate, we just ask that you please call in advance. If you are moving, redecorating, or downsizing – please think of us!
The residents of Detroit Lakes and the surrounding communities continue to be generous and supportive, and for that we are genuinely grateful.
LCRC is again participating in Give to the Max Day on Thursday, November 12th. This is a one day only event to support non-profits with an online donation. Watch for more information to come!
Please mark your calendars for our other annual event – the 26th Annual Banquet & Auction which is scheduled to take place on Friday, April 1st at the Holmes Theatre. Our Annual Banquet consistently features fantastic live and silent auction items, a fabulous meal, and entertaining games. However, since the 2016 event falls on April Fool’s Day, expect some additional surprises!
