This Saturday, Nov. 26 the Alberni Valley Lions will stage their 39th annual TV auction on Shaw from 4:15 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
More than 300 items are available for bid, ranging from food certificates to accommodation, gift baskets to skateboards. An average of 50 items will be introduced per hour, co-organizer Don Hudson said.
This is the Lions Club’s major fundraiser for the year, past president Russ McLaughlin said.
“It helps us to get a lot of funds to spend in the community in support of people and their particular needs.”
The Lions also support Easter Seal House and Camp Shawnigan, as well as numerous local charities.
You can check out the items in advance at www.avlionsauction.com (the website was a new addition last year) or go down to Glenwood Centre and check them out in person. To bid, please call 778-421-3101 after 4 p.m. No bids will be taken from the floor at Glenwood Centre, unless you call from a cellphone.
Items can be picked up until 10:30 p.m. Saturday, or between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. on Sunday.
