Covid - Women's Council Auction
Council: 114 - BANGOR
St. Paul the Apostle Parish Women’s Council asked the Knights if they would act as Auctioneer’s for the 2020 Fundraiser Auction to be held on December 8th, 2020 at the St. John’s Church Hall. Brother’s Keith Forbes and Dale Plourde volunteered and were the auctioneer and assistant. Due to Covid, the maximum capacity was limited to 50 participants, there were approximately 41 persons in attendance.
The Auction was vey well put together, with 60 items up for live auction, another 20 plus for silent auction, and in addition there was a table with sale items at reduced prices.
The flow of the auction was very fast as the small crowd kept the bidding wars to a minimum. it took 90 minutes to auction off 60 sets of items.
Everything went, there ws nothing left over, to which everyone on the committee were pleased.
In addition to all the items up for bid, we had another 20-25 gift certificates, these were combined with the auction items making the gifts auctioned that much more of a good deal.
Nice success during a terrible time in History.
God speed for a Vaccine.
