Greater Trail Rossland Rotary holding online auction

The Greater Trail Rotary Online Auction will be running until Oct. 18.

The Rotary Clubs of Rossland, Trail, and Waneta-Trail Sunrise are holding The Greater Trail Rotary Online Auction, community fundraising initiative from now until Oct. 18.

Your participation in the auction supports these clubs’ projects and donations to: Rossland Youth Action Network (Y.A.N.), Rossland Skatepark, Rossland Museum, Trail’s Riverfront Centre Library & Museum, Trail’s Skate (All Wheel) Park, Trail’s Kate’s Kitchen, Trail’s Sanctuary Pre-Teen Centre, Greater Trail Hospice Society, Rotary International Youth Exchange, Adventures in Citizenship and Adventures in Technology, and a few international projects for youth education and clean water in under-developed countries.

The auction items include goods and services for business, individuals, organizations, families and collectors — and a wide variety of value. Many items are the things that you may already purchase periodically.

Many thanks to our generous donors, and now we need buyers to bid on the items.

View the items and register to bid on www.gtrotary.ca. There are a few ways to bid — we suggest the “Max Bid” option. See the rules and information page for details about the simple process.

The Rotary Clubs of Rossland and Trail hope this will become a successful, annual event to support the different projects we support. Thank you to everyone for your support of our efforts to contribute to our communities.
