33rd Annual Rotary TV Auction
December 6 @ 7:00 pm - December 7 @ 11:59 pm
33rd Annual Rotary TV Auction begins this Friday and Saturday
If you missed out on the bargains of Black Friday, you’ll have another opportunity to save plenty of dollars on your favourite products and services starting this Friday at 7 pm. Over 400 items will be up for auction on Your TV 700 HD and online. According to Rotarian Terry Cloutier, chairperson for the Rotary TV Auction, “the large assortment of goodies hasn’t been this interesting in years.” “Our warehouse is busting at the seams with automotive goods, electronics, gift certificates, travel packages, sports tickets, household goods, artworks and dozens and dozens of other great items too. We are so flush with items that we even are offering a toilet,” she added.
Viewers are urged to check out the entire inventory of the year’s auction online. All items will be sold in hourly blocks of time over the eight to nine-hour broadcast. “The key to picking up a fabulous “tax-free” bargain during the Rotary TV Auction is to identify what items you would like to compete for and then bid early and often,” said Mary Lou Decou, a veteran organizer of the event and long-standing Rotary. The bid line is 519-250-1100.
Winning bidders will be able to pick-up their items as early as Sunday or Monday afternoon (Dec.8th and 9th) at Marcotte Funeral Home in Tecumseh. The club accepts cash, cheque or debit and credit card for payment.
All the proceeds from this year’s auction are earmarked to support charitable causes, including the funding of a therapeutic greenhouse at Hotel Dieu Heathcare, basic needs for Windsor’s homeless and hungry population and the continued efforts to eradicate polio. All items “up for bid” are donated by the local business community, who also support the TV Auction with sponsorship and donations. Celebrity auctioneers give their time and talent to the broadcast while behind the scenes, dozens of volunteers handle the phone calls, track bids, and assist with the technical requirements of the TV Auction.
The Rotary Club of Windsor-St. Clair hope to generate $60,000 from this year’s TV Auction.
