Joe’s Kids benefited from the March 7 charity quarter auction hosted by iBOP This event was at the American Legion Post No. 49 in Warsaw.
At Joe’s Kids, special children receive physical, occupational, and speech therapy from Joe’s amazing staff of professionals. Joe’s Kid’s exists to help each child reach their full potential and to support their families along the way.
With 16 vendors in attendance there was a large variety of over 100 items to bid on from direct sales consultants and handmade items from crafters in the iBOP group. The iBOP group raised $1,020 along with a trunk full of donations for Joe’s Kid’s with this event.
A quarter auction is a fun way to support a charity and maybe pick up some gifts for yourself or someone else for mere quarters. You will want to purchase your tickets in advance for $5 each as seating is limited. Tickets will be $7 at the door if any are remaining.
You then will exchange your ticket for a paddle and a numbered ball. When you decide you would like to try to win the item up for bid you will put the appropriate number of quarters in a bucket in the middle of the table and hold your numbered paddle up high. For example a $45 item is only a 2 quarter bid. If your numbered ball is drawn and you have bid, you win that item for just 2 quarters!
